There is a mandatory passport application fee for most services. No fee is required to correct a printing error or to change the name in a passport that was issued within the last 12 months. There is an additional execution fee when submiting form DS-11 at an application acceptance facility. Optional fees for expedited service, overnight delivery of your new passport and a file search must be paid by those who request them.

If you need a passport faster than the 10-12 weeks it takes by routine processing, you can add expedited service fee to the total payment. We recommend you add the cost of overnight delivery when sending the application by mail. This is not required if you submit the form at a regional agency, however, you will need proof of travel within two weeks to do so. (Source: www.us-passport-service-guide.com )

The US passport renewal fee is paid by those submitting application Form DS-82. Adult renewal applicants in the U.S. may apply by mail (recommended), or in person at a Regional Passport Agency.
