Southwest Raises Airfare

The rising price at the pump-hits closer to home. Get ready to pay more the next time you fly.

Southwest Airlines is leading the latest attempt by US Airlines to raise fares-to cover the rising cost of fuel.

Southwest raised fares on "Short Routes" by ten dollars per round trip-and several other airlines were quick to match the increase.

Since Southwest carries more passengers within the United States than any other airline, it carries big influence in air fare sales.

When it leads in price hike attempts, others usually follow.
