In the past, when I've booked my October Disneyworld trip, I've always bought airfare about 30 days ahead, never failing to get an awesome price ( never paid more than 75.00 one way from Nashville to Orlando). Right now, the price is at 120.00 one way and I'm afraid it's going to climb. I'm out of my element because I've never had to buy airfare early for fear it will go up since it's always gone down in the past...but I'm starting to worry. Should I grit my teeth and buy my tickets now or do you think I should wait?

it's very ahrd to say these days. with the gas prices climbing and climbing, its very scary leaving your flight to the last minute, and its getting harder and harder to find cheap prices. I live in London, Ontario, Canada and I wanted to fly to Indianapolis this month to see a friend but the cheapest flight I could find was nearly $300!!!! That's not including tax either.

My verdict: i think travelling will become more and more difficult and slowly people will begin to not travel as much. Therefore, more seats on the plane available...that is, for now. I'd say stick with what you're doing, 30 days in advance, but I think regardless the prices will go up and we can't really do anything about it. My only other suggestion could be to try and book extra early and get some deals? I know some flights are cheaper if you book extremely early (many months in advance), so you can try that

Good luck!

No doubt they are going up constantly and will keep doing so with fuel cost rising. Also they are cutting flights ;so not as many special deals.
