Airlines Impose Fuel Surcharges

Photo Courtesy - United Continental Holdings(NEW YORK) -- Some major airlines are imposing fuel surcharges as the cost of oil rises on global markets. Oil is close to a two-year high and, as a result, airlines are adjusting their rates.

JetBlue has added 35 dollars each way to its Puerto Rico flights plus a 45 dollar fuel surcharge for other destinations in the Caribbean. 

American Airlines, Continental, United and Delta are adding fees on domestic flights, but its not clear if all of them will stick. 

Southwest has not said if it will add fuel fees, but many fares have been going up in recent months.
