Cheap Airline Tickets Coming

Give me a ticket for an aeroplane. It's way cheaper than a (nonexistent) fast train -- and "10 to 20 percent" cheaper than air tickets bought earlier in the year, according to reports.

Airfares are expected to drop 10 to 20 percent this month, according to travel website FareCompare. The price drop will affect flights taking off August 21 and after, the LA Times reported.

The reason is that with children back in school and folks back at work following their dearly won vacation time, peak travel is over, the newspaper reported. This means now is the time to score a $222 round-trip flight from San Diego to Providence, Rhode Island -- down from $380, the newspaper reported.

Providence, here you come.
