Rising gas prices and airline travel ticket prices continue to rise. I remember the days of $350 roundtrip tickets from Salt Lake City (SLC) but those are long gone. Even the $500 tickets that seemed available just a few years ago are nowhere to be seen and $750 and up seem to be common priced tickets.
Finding deals from Las Vegas and the West Coast seem like the best options as well as maximizing your award points.
