If you spent the weekend planning a trip, you may have noticed airfares were up.

It started on Friday when Southwest airlines raised prices by $10 for a round trip flight.

That quickly encouraged competitors to match the increase. Airlines such as United Airlines, American Airlines and Delta Air Lines followed suit over the weekend. Southwest Airlines says rising fuel costs forced its increase.
