American Airlines Raises Fares Due to Gas Prices

Gas prices are to blame for the latest airline increase, according to American Airline officials. The company increased domestic roundtrip fares $20 over the weekend.

They say the increase is needed to offset their high fuel cost. There is no word on whether other airlines will follow suit.

There have been nearly a dozen increased fares so far this year. And that's on top of other new fees, like baggage fees already in place.

Experts say the price of jet fuel has doubled in the past year and there seems to be no relief in sight.
