When the price of oil goes up, YOUR plane ticket costs go up.

It all makes sense really, with oil prices on the rise, airlines have to spend more to fly people around.  That extra cost gets passed on to the consumer!   Prices for airline tickets are expected to rise about $10 to $50 per week as airlines deal with the extra fuel charges. 

Already, most US airlines have tacked on an extra $40 to the old $360 fuel surcharge on round-trip tickets to Paris, Frankfurt and many other European cities.  The price for a barrel of oil has exceeded $100, a lot of that due to the crisis in Libya, and it shows no sign of coming down to a more reasonable price anytime soon.  Check out more fares at:
