Gas prices here is SC are now below $3 gal. Air fares continue to rise. Two years ago I could fly from East Coast to Vegas for around $200 buying tickets 8-10 months in advance. Now it is hard to find a fare under $425 (even booking into April/May 2013) regardless of how far out you price tickets. Sorry, I just don't get it!!!- Yes! Someone will add on and say gas prices are not tied to jet fuel. Then what the h--- are air fare prices attached to??
