Is this considered price gouging or is inflation hitting more than just groceries, gas and electronics? Is there a correlation with the cost of fuel going up? If we're going to be paying more at the pump will be paying more to fly as well?

I know these prices might seem like a joke but they are very real. It seems like a lot of people are trying to get out of Newburgh. Are people really paying top dollar to fly in to the small little airport there?

A Hudson Valley resident reported these insanely high airplane ticket prices to fly from Detroit Metropolitan Airport to Stewart International Airport. At these prices it seems like that economy tickets are only affordable if you are a celebrity or a lottery winner.

According to Travel Math, it would cost about $169.00 roundtrip to drive from Detroit to New York with the current gas prices. What would two trips cost on via plane five days apart from each other. Take a look at the cost. It might make your head spin.

Are Flights to Newburgh, New York Really Selling for Over $12,000?

Who has that kind of money to spend on an airplane ticket? Since the flights were no longer listed does that mean that they actually sold? You could buy a nice previously owned car with less than 100,000 miles and still pay less than these prices. An all inclusive trip to the Caribbean would be a fraction of the cost as well. I don't know about you but a week in Jamaica sounds a lot more enticing than a week in Newburgh. Sorry.
