A recent poll ranked the high cost of fuel among the American people’s three biggest concerns (along with the economy and high unemployment rates). This statistic is a case of history repeating itself as all five economic downturns since 1973 were either results of or corresponded with a spike in energy costs. Consumers have been pointing fingers when confronted with the fact that fuel prices are at an all-time high.
What people fail to understand is that more often than not, oil companies don’t set crude-oil prices; the global market does. Essentially, the market decides what people are willing to pay at a certain moment in time. This can ultimately be attributed to the fact that countries like India and China are growing, which has created more demand for oil and gas. Despite efforts to “go green” in the United States, there has not been any reduction in energy use. The United States has 4% of the world’s population, but we consume 25% of the world’s oil. This lesson in supply and demand has directly affected the cost of air travel causing fliers to battle with fluctuating ticket prices.
Popular U.S. carries, including Delta, US Airways and American have increased their ticket prices in order to compensate. Prices have been increased 20% or more, which is frustrating consumers across the nation. Today’s outrageous fuel costs have led many once-avid travelers to avoid flying altogether. This does not have to be the solution! Rather than gambling on the fuel markets and uncertainty of the costs of commercial travel, people are recognizing the value found in private jet travel.
