High Gas Prices Raising Airline Ticket Costs – CBS DC #fly

High Gas Prices Raising Airline Ticket Costs

Spring and summer travel could become just a dream for many travelers as gas prices affect airfare. (Photo by Richard Heathcote/Getty Images)

WASHINGTON , D.C. (CBSDC)   For many Americans, the lamentation of rising gas costs is nothing new. It’s an everyday reality to see prices at the pump going up.

But now, those looking to get away from it all may encounter further troubles doing so, thanks to gas price hikes that have the potential to curb holiday travel and drive up the cost of plane tickets.

Travel buffs are just beginning to solidify their spring break and summer vacation plans. As they do, comparison shopping may show that such hikes have already started to take their toll on the cost of airfare.

[R]ising jet fuel costs put significant cost pressure on the airline industry, Steve Lott, vice present of communications for Airlines for America told CBSDC. Regarding fuel, it was the airline industry’s largest expense in 2011, representing 35 percent of total costs. In 2011, the price of jet fuel reached a record high of $3.00 per gallon for the year.

He continued, It is even higher for the first two months of 2012.

Cynthia Brough, director of public relations for AAA, said that as jet fuel costs go up in tandem with gas prices, the consumer could expect to pay more for their flight.

As with any business, if [an airline] pays more for fuel and operational costs, they need to pass that cost on to the consumer, she told CBSDC. There have been [similar] effects in the past.

Though the illegality of price signaling prevents airlines from discussing numbers, Allison Steinberg, senior media analyst for JetBlue Airways, told CBSDC that there are steps taken to try to stave off the potential effects of rising gas prices.

We continue to believe the best tools for managing the impact of fuel expense are operating a fuel-efficient fleet and using efficient operating procedures, such as single engine taxi, she said in an email. In addition, we continue to manage our fuel hedge portfolio as a form of insurance to help mitigate price volatility and protect JetBlue against severe spikes in oil prices.

It may take more extreme measures for airlines to keep up, though. Lott added that, from the year 2000 to the middle of 2011, jet fuel prices rose 268 percent. In that same time period, domestic airfare costs reportedly rose 10 percent.

Fares over the past decade have not kept pace with costs or the price of fuel, he noted.

According to information provided by the AAA National Office to CBSDC, some airlines have already taken such action, replacing larger jets with smaller, regional aircrafts that are more fuel-efficient in nature.

Travel website Expedia.com confirmed that prices have gone up for flights in recent history. However, they additionally stated that ticket sales have increased as well.

Despite the recent rise in gas prices, Expedia sees people still taking to the skies, Jeremy Boore, travel analyst for Expedia.com, said to CBSDC. With regards to flights, on some of the most popular routes, Expedia sees ticket growth outpacing average ticket price growth.

According to their collected data, tickets between Los Angeles International and John F. Kennedy International Airports in the past 28 days have gone up in price by 1.7%, with sales up 14.1% in comparison with the previous 28-day period.

Other popular routes saw similar rises in both cost and consumption.

[T]here is still demand for travel, all things considered, Boore added.

All the same, consumer surveys and data collected last year indicate that some travelers did make the decision to avoid air travel, instead opting to go by car.

American drivers will still have to pay more to vacation, however, statistics offered by the U.S. Energy Information Administration show that, for the week starting Feb. 27, gasoline prices per gallon averaged out at $3.71.

That amount reflects a rise of 13 cents from the previous week, and 33 cents from the same week in 2011.

The past month has also been statistically more expensive at the pump than last February, according to numbers collected by AAA. The data collected and presented by their Daily Fuel Gauge Report shows that on March 1, 2012, the national average for a gallon of gas is $3.74. The same time last year, Americans paid just $3.39 per gallon.

The increase in cost can be attributed to a number of things, including dwindling supplies and increasing demand as summer ticks closer and the politics surrounding crude oil acquisition, especially in the Middle East.

Avery Ash, manager of regulatory affairs for AAA, said that gas prices do tend to rise slightly as March begins and winter draws to a close. But the rise seen recently is atypical in size, due to geopolitical influences.

Last year we saw escalating tensions in Libya and northern Africa, and that uncertainty impacted the market most specifically, the removal of Libyan crude from the market, he told CBSDC, adding that this year s recent tensions in Iran have taken their toll as well. This time of year we do see some upward movement, but the last two years have broken the historical norm in the magnitude of the increases.

A combination of pent-up vacation desires and years of experience with balancing personal budgets has helped American travelers enjoy some time away all the same, even if they had to change their approach.

[Travelers] did … budget more wisely, by perhaps visiting national parks for free as opposed to another venue of higher cost, Brough said. They changed the type of travel, but they still traveled.

But as Nancy White, who also directs AAA public relations, observed in their end-of-year holiday travel forecasts from 2011, many Americans will prioritize travel over other expenses, especially if family and friends are involved in the trip.

The heartstrings outweigh the purse strings, she said, quoting a colleague. People will do whatever they need to do to spend time with loved ones, making cuts in other areas of spending to accommodate travel plans.

Bed Bug Report for Marriott Residence Inn Capitol Washington DC, Washington,


Marriott Residence Inn Capitol Washington DC
333 E St Sw
Washington, DC 20024-3221

Found 12 reports:

Anonymous on 12/26/2012

Well, I didn’t know what bed bugs were, but I found out recently after a stay here. I thought it might be a rash or some alergic reaction. not knowing what bed bugs were. Well, now I’ve learned and know to check a website like this one, before making a hotel reservation. Don’t stay here. You don’t want the bites. Believe me. For me I woke up in the middle of the night itching and hot like I was running a temperature. I think the bites actually caused my body to go into an allergic reacti

on. In the end I had tiny red itchy spots all over my body. and now I’m concerned they got into my luggage and my house.

anonymous on 10/05/2012

This place has bed bugs, stayed there August 2012 for a couple weeks and started having bumps on my arms! didn’t think much of it, until the night sleeping bed watching TV, this large black bug/tic something walked on the sheet. I ran out to the front desk. They stormed my room, went though all my luggage my clothes underware and all. they took everything to wash and moved me to another room. By the time the horrific night was over it was 4AM. the manager told me she will give me lots of mar

riot points.
Well I am out of there now and the hurtfull bumps are all gone. I will never stay there again.
this place has bed bugs.

Anonymous on 08/10/2011

We stayed here for 6 nights August 2011. After reading reports of bedbugs at this motel, I did a very thorough inspection of both the bed AND sofabed as soon as we checked in and found nothing. We had a wonderful stay. Everything was very clean and comfortable and I would not hesitate staying here again or recommending it to someone else!

I stayed at this hotel in February and had no problems at all. The room was very clean and comfortable. Would absolutely stay here again!

Stayed in this hotel for two weeks in March 2011, and I did not have any issues at all. Room was clean and did not see any bugs or experience any bites.

kevin swanson on 04/04/2011

stayed at hotel 3/18/11-3/22/11, on the sixth floor

With all the bed bug paranoia, we always check the bedding immediately after check-in. We discovered no bed bugs and did not suffer any bites. The breakfast buffet area was neat and orderly with no signs of bugs or unclean eating surfaces.

Swarming with bed bugs in my bed Nov 4-5 2010. 4 dozen bites.

Hotel Management on 10/19/2010

We take great pride in our hotel and in the services we offer and have a very aggressive extermination program in place. Bed bugs are not a regular occurrence at our hotel because of our aggressive pest control program which is administered by a professional pest control company. Besides our regular extermination program which occurs monthly, we use an outside company for any incidents that involve any kind of report of bugs. We have increased our room inspection program which includes checking

for the presence of bugs and insects. If anything is found during this process or reported by any guest, we immediately call the outside extermination company for treatment and we do not sell the room until it is pest free. We also inspect all rooms around that room and above and below to ensure no other rooms have been affected. No rooms are put back into service until we are given a clean record from the outside company.

As has been recently reported by many news sources, the incidence of bed bugs is higher than usual throughout the United States and the world. Bed Bugs have been found in many locations, including popular retail chains, movie theaters, public transportation vehicles and hotels. Bed bugs are not a cleanliness issue and are brought into hotels by guests who have been in contact with them elsewhere. No hotel is exempt. Bed bugs do not discriminate between hotel brand, star rating, or location of hotel. What does distinguish a hotel above the rest is how aggressive they treat for bed bugs in the rare occurrence of a sighting or infestation. I am confident that our aggressive extermination program addresses this issue so that our guests can have a safe and comfortable stay.

sid on 10/13/2010

i have bites all over my arms and legs from mesquitos, fleas, gnats, and bed bugs. The mattress had bugs all over. the lobby had several gnats and mesquitos flying all over especailly in the area where the breakfast buffet is. i went to get a soda from the machine and there was gnats in my sprite. this hotel also allows pets which could be the reason that there are so many flees just hoping around the lobby area. if you look hard enough you will see them on the floors. Me and my wife have bites

all over our arms and legs. i stayed 10/1/10 to 10/4/10. I also happened to see some cochroaches around outside the building and wouldnt be suprised if they are walking the halls of the hotel. it is as if this hotel does not follow any type of extermination program through ecolab or other commercail santitation companies.

Anonymous on 09/22/2010

Stayed end of September 2010.

Woke up first morning and noticed bites on ankle, thought it might be from something else. Woke up second morning and noticed new bites on thigh. Room was on 8th floor.

D S on 09/09/2010

Stayed at this hotel in July 2010. My wife woke up and found one bug on her. Thankfully no welts.

Coastie on 07/30/2010

End of July 2010

Bedbugs reported in room on 12th floor. They came in and sprayed and replaced mattress. Over next few days. more bites appeared.

Hoping that I haven’t picked up critters into luggage and laundry. Don’t want to bring these home.

The Personal Injury Specialist

Attorney William Justice Whitaker is a personal injury lawyer who is licensed in Washington, DC, Virginia, and West Virginia, and serves clients in these areas. He graduated from law school in 2008 and worked with a law firm for a while before establishing his own firm. Whitaker is adept at building strong cases in any area of personal injury, and works hard on behalf of his clients in court, regardless of the severity of their injuries.

At the Law Office of William Justice Whitaker, all clients deal directly with attorney Whitaker, rather than with an associate or an assistant. He believes that the best possible resolution to a personal injury case is achieved through a close collaboration between attorney and client.

What Is Personal Injury Law?

Personal injury law is a broad area of legal practice that protects the rights of an individual who was injured as the result of another’s negligence, recklessness, and/or intentional actions. The purpose of a civil lawsuit is to restore the plaintiff to normalcy after their injury.

If you or a family member are hurt in an accident, a law firm that specializes in personal injury can guide you through the process of bringing a claim and lawsuit against the party at fault. A personal injury lawyer is essential to helping you obtain the maximum compensation and repairing the damage done to you. In addition to medical expenses for your injury, you may also be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, loss of society and companionship, future medical expenses, lost wages, and punitive damages.

Why Do You Need an Attorney?

For the same reason that you hire a contractor to fix your home or a mechanic to fix your car, an attorney who specializes in personal injury is needed to maximize your claim and compensation when you are hurt. An experienced attorney can quickly, accurately, and fairly navigate your case through the legal process, which can become overwhelming for an individual without experience. An attorney who has a history with the insurance companies and knows how they work will have the best chance of maximizing your compensation.

Know that insurance companies set aside billions of dollars for accident coverage payouts and that they pay their attorneys millions to see that you get as little compensation as possible. Fight back by hiring an experienced attorney to represent your rights.


Remember that insurance companies do not care how long it takes for your claim to settle. We will aggressively pursue your case and will not let the insurance companies drag their feet while you suffer.

Library of Congress

The three buildings of the Library of Congress house more than 158 million items, enough to sate any bibliophile. There are more than just books among its vast collection: You’ll also find sheet music, film, rare literature and other resources. Take a guided tour of the world’s largest library to find out more about its beautiful architecture and rotating exhibitions.

Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception

Prepare to be impressed: the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception is the largest Catholic church in the country, and this title is well-earned. Built in a Neo-Byzantine style, it features a large dome that is decorated both on the inside and the outside, enormous vaulted archways, dozens of interior chapels and many works of art.

National Gallery of Art

A massive art museum with a huge collection of masterpieces, the National Gallery of Art is always popular among tourists for its easy accessibility and free entry. Its permanent collection includes important artists such as Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, Matisse and Pollock, while a rotating exhibition of art exposes visitors to a wide range of historically significant pieces.

Old Ebbitt Grill

Founded in 1856, Old Ebbitt Grill lives up to its name — it’s the city’s oldest restaurant and bar. Stop in between sightseeing destinations (it’s right by the White House) and tuck into traditional American platters such as lump crab cakes, glazed meatloaf and pumpkin French toast. Happy hour gets you half-priced oysters at the bar.

Located in Penn Quarter, Rasika is hugely popular for its modern Indian cuisine. Among its numerous awards, Rasika has the honor of making diners salivate over an unexpected dish: fried spinach. Known as Palak Chaat, these crispy baby spinach leaves mixed with a sweet yogurt and chutney never fail to enchant the taste buds.

Founding Fathers

A sprawling restaurant in Foggy Bottom, Founding Farmers serves up tasty American fare with customer favorites that are too many to list: crispy chicken and waffles, honeyed skillet cornbread, an incredible red velvet cake plus a handful of substantial vegan entrees. Top it all off with a cocktail containing Founding Fathers’ own whisky or gin!

John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

Featuring celebrated groups such as the National Symphony Orchestra, the Washington National Opera, the Suzanne Farrell Ballet and more, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is the premier place to get your performing arts fix. Seven different venues give you plenty of options and genres to choose from!

This low-key bar takes after speakeasies of the Prohibition era, with an unadorned black door leading to an unpretentious space serving top-notch mixed drinks. A strict no-standing policy means you won’t be fighting for elbow room at the bar. Sit back and take in the ambience, but be sure you make a reservation beforehand.

Madam’s Organ

Noticeable by the giant, red-haired mural on the side of the building, Madam’s Organ is beloved for having live music every day of the week, covering everything from blues to salsa to bluegrass. The name is a play on words of the name of the surrounding neighborhood, Adams Morgan, and demonstrates the bar’s eclectic, diverse and fun-loving clientele.

When pollsters interrupt people’s dinners to ask about their New Year’s resolutions, very often the top three responses are “get in shape,” “lose weight” and “save money.” Find a deal on a gym membership, and you can do all three. Here’s how…

  • Go to college: Colleges and universities are another often-overlooked resource. Most now have elaborate exercise facilities to attract students, and many offer memberships to the community. In the D.C. area, one example is Trinity Washington University, which charges Brookland neighbors $520 a year to join its Trinity Center gym. Compare that with the roughly $600 to $1,200 a year some of the big D.C. gym chains charge, according to Consumers’ Checkbook.

High Gas Prices Raising Airline Ticket Costs – CBS DC #travel

High Gas Prices Raising Airline Ticket Costs

Spring and summer travel could become just a dream for many travelers as gas prices affect airfare. (Photo by Richard Heathcote/Getty Images)

WASHINGTON , D.C. (CBSDC)   For many Americans, the lamentation of rising gas costs is nothing new. It’s an everyday reality to see prices at the pump going up.

But now, those looking to get away from it all may encounter further troubles doing so, thanks to gas price hikes that have the potential to curb holiday travel and drive up the cost of plane tickets.

Travel buffs are just beginning to solidify their spring break and summer vacation plans. As they do, comparison shopping may show that such hikes have already started to take their toll on the cost of airfare.

[R]ising jet fuel costs put significant cost pressure on the airline industry, Steve Lott, vice present of communications for Airlines for America told CBSDC. Regarding fuel, it was the airline industry’s largest expense in 2011, representing 35 percent of total costs. In 2011, the price of jet fuel reached a record high of $3.00 per gallon for the year.

He continued, It is even higher for the first two months of 2012.

Cynthia Brough, director of public relations for AAA, said that as jet fuel costs go up in tandem with gas prices, the consumer could expect to pay more for their flight.

As with any business, if [an airline] pays more for fuel and operational costs, they need to pass that cost on to the consumer, she told CBSDC. There have been [similar] effects in the past.

Though the illegality of price signaling prevents airlines from discussing numbers, Allison Steinberg, senior media analyst for JetBlue Airways, told CBSDC that there are steps taken to try to stave off the potential effects of rising gas prices.

We continue to believe the best tools for managing the impact of fuel expense are operating a fuel-efficient fleet and using efficient operating procedures, such as single engine taxi, she said in an email. In addition, we continue to manage our fuel hedge portfolio as a form of insurance to help mitigate price volatility and protect JetBlue against severe spikes in oil prices.

It may take more extreme measures for airlines to keep up, though. Lott added that, from the year 2000 to the middle of 2011, jet fuel prices rose 268 percent. In that same time period, domestic airfare costs reportedly rose 10 percent.

Fares over the past decade have not kept pace with costs or the price of fuel, he noted.

According to information provided by the AAA National Office to CBSDC, some airlines have already taken such action, replacing larger jets with smaller, regional aircrafts that are more fuel-efficient in nature.

Travel website Expedia.com confirmed that prices have gone up for flights in recent history. However, they additionally stated that ticket sales have increased as well.

Despite the recent rise in gas prices, Expedia sees people still taking to the skies, Jeremy Boore, travel analyst for Expedia.com, said to CBSDC. With regards to flights, on some of the most popular routes, Expedia sees ticket growth outpacing average ticket price growth.

According to their collected data, tickets between Los Angeles International and John F. Kennedy International Airports in the past 28 days have gone up in price by 1.7%, with sales up 14.1% in comparison with the previous 28-day period.

Other popular routes saw similar rises in both cost and consumption.

[T]here is still demand for travel, all things considered, Boore added.

All the same, consumer surveys and data collected last year indicate that some travelers did make the decision to avoid air travel, instead opting to go by car.

American drivers will still have to pay more to vacation, however, statistics offered by the U.S. Energy Information Administration show that, for the week starting Feb. 27, gasoline prices per gallon averaged out at $3.71.

That amount reflects a rise of 13 cents from the previous week, and 33 cents from the same week in 2011.

The past month has also been statistically more expensive at the pump than last February, according to numbers collected by AAA. The data collected and presented by their Daily Fuel Gauge Report shows that on March 1, 2012, the national average for a gallon of gas is $3.74. The same time last year, Americans paid just $3.39 per gallon.

The increase in cost can be attributed to a number of things, including dwindling supplies and increasing demand as summer ticks closer and the politics surrounding crude oil acquisition, especially in the Middle East.

Avery Ash, manager of regulatory affairs for AAA, said that gas prices do tend to rise slightly as March begins and winter draws to a close. But the rise seen recently is atypical in size, due to geopolitical influences.

Last year we saw escalating tensions in Libya and northern Africa, and that uncertainty impacted the market most specifically, the removal of Libyan crude from the market, he told CBSDC, adding that this year s recent tensions in Iran have taken their toll as well. This time of year we do see some upward movement, but the last two years have broken the historical norm in the magnitude of the increases.

A combination of pent-up vacation desires and years of experience with balancing personal budgets has helped American travelers enjoy some time away all the same, even if they had to change their approach.

[Travelers] did … budget more wisely, by perhaps visiting national parks for free as opposed to another venue of higher cost, Brough said. They changed the type of travel, but they still traveled.

But as Nancy White, who also directs AAA public relations, observed in their end-of-year holiday travel forecasts from 2011, many Americans will prioritize travel over other expenses, especially if family and friends are involved in the trip.

The heartstrings outweigh the purse strings, she said, quoting a colleague. People will do whatever they need to do to spend time with loved ones, making cuts in other areas of spending to accommodate travel plans.

Philosophy Religion

Questions?

Philosophy explores the nature of the world, the basis of human values, and foundations of reason. Philosophy also offers the challenge of interpreting the work of thinkers who have created our intellectual traditions. Students approach these issues through study of both historical literature and contemporary developments.

The study of Western and Eastern religious traditions introduces students to a major influence on all civilizations. Journalists, diplomats, and government specialists benefit from a serious consideration of the inner workings of the religious ethos of civilizations. Daily events remind us that there is no more motivating factor in the culture of nations than ardently held religious belief. A thorough understanding of the modern world requires familiarity with its religious heritage. American University’s Washington, DC setting is advantageous for the study of religion, with national offices and centers for many religions. The Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area also offers a variety of courses in philosophy and religion that are available to American University students.

Why Study Philosophy or Religion?

Students often want to know the practical value of studying philosophy or religion. In other words, how will it help you in the future? What jobs are available for philosophy and religious studies majors? What if you want to continue on to graduate school, but don’t want to teach philosophy or religion?

The study of philosophy or religion helps students develop valuable skills leading to work in any number of fields. Studying philosophy or religion provides excellent preparation for graduate study in many disciplines and areas of study.

Check out a short piece from NPR on the need for philosophers engaged in public debate here .

Career opportunities

Students graduating with majors in philosophy or religion have chosen careers in law, medicine, social work, the ministry, computer science, environmental protection, human rights, journalism, communication, government, business, education, race relations, and applied ethics.

New studies have also shown that degrees in the Humanities, especially Philosophy, have great returns on investment .

Graduate school

Students have pursued graduate study in philosophy, religious studies, theology, history, psychology, linguistics, anthropology, medicine, law, economics, public health, literature, and education.

Intellectual development and skills

Philosophy and religion courses are ideal for students who want to develop and improve writing and analytical skills. Students of philosophy or religion become more aware of themselves and the world around them. By raising questions that explore the basic principles of existence and ultimate human concerns, the study of philosophy or religion helps students develop many skills such as the ability to

  • reason clearly
  • extract what is essential from large amounts of information
  • understand and analyze complicated texts
  • develop a well-structured argument
  • express ideas in a clear and persuasive manner
  • solve problems

Why Study Philosophy in DC?

Our location in the heart of DC provides:

  • Easy access to Smithsonian Institutions, museums, national monuments, and the Library of Congress
  • A wealth of varied and diverse internship and service opportunities with the federal government and non-profit organizations
  • Opportunities to see and participate in political life and history as it happens

Why Choose AU?

At American University, our graduate and undergraduate programs prepare students to enter into the field of professional philosophy or many fields of postgraduate education. Besides teaching the classics of historical and contemporary philosophical thought and important philosophical developments, many classes are devoted to the application of philosophy to issues concerning biomedicine, environmental protection, human rights, the media, business, and race relations. Alumni of our BA program pursue graduate work not only in philosophy but also in other fields such as history, psychology, linguistics, computer science, anthropology, and literature. Many positions in science and industry require the analytical skills gained through the study of philosophy. In addition, the Philosophy program emphasizes clear thinking, accurate writing, and problem solving as well as the application to today’s practical problems. These skills are excellent preparation for further study toward law, medicine, social work, the ministry, and other professional careers.

What Is Philosophy?

The best way to find an answer to this question is to take one or two philosophy courses (as part of your general education requirements). However, for those of you looking for an instant answer, philosophy is the study of ideas, whether moral, legal, religious, or aesthetic. Philosophers explore the nature of the real world, the basis of human values, and the foundations of reason. Students at American University approach these issues by studying texts from different periods as well as from different regions. For example, students study both historical literature and contemporary developments in Western and Asian philosophy as well as other traditions such as the Latin American and African.

We represent victims of all kinds of accidents – including car accidents. workplace accidents. and fall down accidents – in Washington, DC and the surrounding communities. We represent only personal injury victims, not insurance companies or corporations.

About Washington DC

Washington, DC is known throughout the world as the capital of the United States. But Washington is not only the home of the President. It’s also home to hundreds of thousands of hard-working people who live in distinct neighborhoods, from Adams Morgan, Arlington and Bethesda to Columbia Heights and Shaw.

Washington also is famous for its traffic congestion. About 1,500 miles of roadway stretch throughout the District of Columbia, including the famous Capital Beltway. Some D.C. commuters have taken to public transportation to avoid the highways. Commuters who do drive themselves to work spend about 70 hours a year in traffic delays, which means Washington, D.C. is viewed as having the worst road congestion in the United States.

How Mike Slocumb and his team can help

It’s important to contact an accomplished legal professional who understands how to apply the law to a specific case. Our attorneys in the nation’s capital not only understand the law, but also have access to the resources needed to get results.

A serious injury in Washington calls for aggressive representation. Whether you’ve been injured in a car accident, due to a slip and fall or after a dog bite, the legal professionals at Slocumb Law Firm are ready to roll up their sleeves and go to work for you.

About Washington, DC, and serious accidents

Washington, DC, is a bustling area. The highways typically are jam packed with trucks, cars and motorcycles. The city attracts government workers who may be commuting from suburbs in Virginia or Maryland as well as tourists from across the globe who come to the city to see the monuments and memorials near the National Mall. They may come to see the museums or the ornate government buildings.

Interstate-95 around the city is known as the Capital Beltway, which is often congested with cars, trucks and motorcycles. With such a high volume of traffic in and around the city, it’s not unusual for accidents to happen.

Truck and car accidents in the nation’s capital

Many large trucks share the roads and highways with the smaller passenger vehicles. When trucks are involved in accidents, the injuries to the occupants of the smaller vehicle are often catastrophic. Your life can be forever changed due to the negligence of another party. It’s crucial to learn about your rights if you or a loved one was injured in a semi truck accident.

We have heard from clients who had significant trouble dealing with their insurance companies. We can handle the insurance company for you while you focus on your recovery.

Car + Truck Accidents

Car and truck accidents occur at an alarming rate. When you are the one hurt in a motor vehicle accident, there is nothing ordinary about the situation.

Get directions

“The itinerary included 4 different airlines along the way and 8 total segments.” in 2 reviews

“I do think Airfare.com should post the possibility of a Foreign Transaction Fee on their site, but my refund was handled promptly and efficiently.” in 2 reviews

Recommended Reviews

So I too was in a panic when I saw the awful reviews. I was way passed the window of being able to cancel.

My tip is that know your dates, be sure of your dates before booking and do not change the dates. I was certain of my dates and took the flight. The only issue I had was that I had to call airfare.com a few times to verify that my credit card was legit. Not the best customer service. There was a slight language barrier and they would just hang up when they think you ve asked all your questions.

I probably will not use them again though unless the price is drastically reduced.

Here is Kayak s reply when I asked why associate themselves with airfare.com –

Hi there,

Thanks for your message.

All companies shown within KAYAK s search results are legitimate travel providers.

KAYAK finds and presents as many relevant travel options, matching your criteria, as possible. Once you leave KAYAK to book, the transaction is subject to the chosen booking provider s stated rules, conditions and policies. If a post-booking issue did occur, you would work with their customer service team to resolve it.

That said, if you feel at all uncomfortable with any one provider you may want to consider one of the other providers listed.

High Gas Prices Raising Airline Ticket Costs – CBS DC #buy

High Gas Prices Raising Airline Ticket Costs

Spring and summer travel could become just a dream for many travelers as gas prices affect airfare. (Photo by Richard Heathcote/Getty Images)

WASHINGTON , D.C. (CBSDC)   For many Americans, the lamentation of rising gas costs is nothing new. It’s an everyday reality to see prices at the pump going up.

But now, those looking to get away from it all may encounter further troubles doing so, thanks to gas price hikes that have the potential to curb holiday travel and drive up the cost of plane tickets.

Travel buffs are just beginning to solidify their spring break and summer vacation plans. As they do, comparison shopping may show that such hikes have already started to take their toll on the cost of airfare.

[R]ising jet fuel costs put significant cost pressure on the airline industry, Steve Lott, vice present of communications for Airlines for America told CBSDC. Regarding fuel, it was the airline industry’s largest expense in 2011, representing 35 percent of total costs. In 2011, the price of jet fuel reached a record high of $3.00 per gallon for the year.

He continued, It is even higher for the first two months of 2012.

Cynthia Brough, director of public relations for AAA, said that as jet fuel costs go up in tandem with gas prices, the consumer could expect to pay more for their flight.

As with any business, if [an airline] pays more for fuel and operational costs, they need to pass that cost on to the consumer, she told CBSDC. There have been [similar] effects in the past.

Though the illegality of price signaling prevents airlines from discussing numbers, Allison Steinberg, senior media analyst for JetBlue Airways, told CBSDC that there are steps taken to try to stave off the potential effects of rising gas prices.

We continue to believe the best tools for managing the impact of fuel expense are operating a fuel-efficient fleet and using efficient operating procedures, such as single engine taxi, she said in an email. In addition, we continue to manage our fuel hedge portfolio as a form of insurance to help mitigate price volatility and protect JetBlue against severe spikes in oil prices.

It may take more extreme measures for airlines to keep up, though. Lott added that, from the year 2000 to the middle of 2011, jet fuel prices rose 268 percent. In that same time period, domestic airfare costs reportedly rose 10 percent.

Fares over the past decade have not kept pace with costs or the price of fuel, he noted.

According to information provided by the AAA National Office to CBSDC, some airlines have already taken such action, replacing larger jets with smaller, regional aircrafts that are more fuel-efficient in nature.

Travel website Expedia.com confirmed that prices have gone up for flights in recent history. However, they additionally stated that ticket sales have increased as well.

Despite the recent rise in gas prices, Expedia sees people still taking to the skies, Jeremy Boore, travel analyst for Expedia.com, said to CBSDC. With regards to flights, on some of the most popular routes, Expedia sees ticket growth outpacing average ticket price growth.

According to their collected data, tickets between Los Angeles International and John F. Kennedy International Airports in the past 28 days have gone up in price by 1.7%, with sales up 14.1% in comparison with the previous 28-day period.

Other popular routes saw similar rises in both cost and consumption.

[T]here is still demand for travel, all things considered, Boore added.

All the same, consumer surveys and data collected last year indicate that some travelers did make the decision to avoid air travel, instead opting to go by car.

American drivers will still have to pay more to vacation, however, statistics offered by the U.S. Energy Information Administration show that, for the week starting Feb. 27, gasoline prices per gallon averaged out at $3.71.

That amount reflects a rise of 13 cents from the previous week, and 33 cents from the same week in 2011.

The past month has also been statistically more expensive at the pump than last February, according to numbers collected by AAA. The data collected and presented by their Daily Fuel Gauge Report shows that on March 1, 2012, the national average for a gallon of gas is $3.74. The same time last year, Americans paid just $3.39 per gallon.

The increase in cost can be attributed to a number of things, including dwindling supplies and increasing demand as summer ticks closer and the politics surrounding crude oil acquisition, especially in the Middle East.

Avery Ash, manager of regulatory affairs for AAA, said that gas prices do tend to rise slightly as March begins and winter draws to a close. But the rise seen recently is atypical in size, due to geopolitical influences.

Last year we saw escalating tensions in Libya and northern Africa, and that uncertainty impacted the market most specifically, the removal of Libyan crude from the market, he told CBSDC, adding that this year s recent tensions in Iran have taken their toll as well. This time of year we do see some upward movement, but the last two years have broken the historical norm in the magnitude of the increases.

A combination of pent-up vacation desires and years of experience with balancing personal budgets has helped American travelers enjoy some time away all the same, even if they had to change their approach.

[Travelers] did … budget more wisely, by perhaps visiting national parks for free as opposed to another venue of higher cost, Brough said. They changed the type of travel, but they still traveled.

But as Nancy White, who also directs AAA public relations, observed in their end-of-year holiday travel forecasts from 2011, many Americans will prioritize travel over other expenses, especially if family and friends are involved in the trip.

The heartstrings outweigh the purse strings, she said, quoting a colleague. People will do whatever they need to do to spend time with loved ones, making cuts in other areas of spending to accommodate travel plans.
