United, Continental and Delta are the three of the nation's biggest airlines and all three announced they're raising fares.
The latest increase at the ticket counter is the second hike in a week. This time it's $5 each way and $10 roundtrip.
Aaron Hambrick's is a frequent business flier and says it won’t be a big deal because his company pays for his air travel. But try telling that to D.C. resident Suzette Hines, who visits her family in Minnesota and Washington State and says $10 more is a pretty penny.
If $10 per round trip doesn't make a big difference to you, consider this: An industry analyst says tickets prices are $50 to $78 more than they were this time last year.
Experts say airlines have been scaling back because of the economy and by making fewer seats available, they can raise prices.
