Airlines cite high fuel costs as they raise fares
If you're buying an airline ticket in the next few days, get ready to pay a few bucks more.
According to fare trackers, JetBlue Airways and Southwest Airlines are leading a round of price increases that will boost the base fare on many medium-length and long flights by $10 per round trip.
United, Delta, American and US Airways said Thursday that they had matched the increases.
Southwest says it's raising prices to cover higher fuel costs.
