Airline Fuel Surcharges Increase

American Airlines, United Airlines and Delta Air Lines have raised their prices AGAIN. This time the increase is $20 rountrip, to help them out with the rapidly rising cost of fuel.

With the fuel surcharges now totaling $130 roundtrip on many flights, passengers could end up paying more in charges, fees and taxes than the actual airfare itself.

And to think I've got two upcoming trips and I haven't bought my airfare yet. Gee whiz! What was I thinking???

That's exactly why I just bought my fare now to Costa Rica, even though my trip is 7 months away. I know that the fare will be going up....

Even local flights are going crazy. Soon I may have to resort to taking Greyhound. :(
