Part of it is due to annual inflation, part is due to the rise in gas prices.  Keep doing your homework and searching for flights.  I posted earlier in another thread about cheap airfare that the best sales are usually on Tuesdays at 3 PM and typically 6 weeks prior to your travel date.  Check for flights on random days and at random times.  I spent weeks looking at air fare from Atlanta to Portland, OR for my cousin’s graduation and it was all between $450-500.  I randomly checked my Delta app one night while watching TV on the couch, and it popped up for $285.  I think I bought it at 8-10 weeks out.  There isn’t much rhyme or reason to air fare sales, so keep checking!

Make sure to clear out your cache/cookies in your computer.  Sites monitor your activity and if they see you’ve been looking at the same flights/times consistently they raise the prices.

could it be because its hurricane season and there are less flights in general? maybe look into flights to Florida and smaller plane flights the rest of the way? sometimes going out of your way a little can save a ton, I have more time than money so its worth it!
