How much does your plane ticket actually cost?Like almost anything you buy in stores, plane tickets come with a base cost plus taxes and fees. These airline taxes and fees can get extremely pricey. Here's a breakdown of a sample $300 round-trip from Peoria, IL to Raleigh, NC sold on Jan. 1, 2017.Taxes and fees account for 21.1% of the total cost. That equates to $63.35 you pay on top of the baseline price. Breaking that $63.35 down further, there's a standard 7.5% tax on the baseline ticket price.Then, there's a $4.50 facility charge for each airport you land in. This flight had a layover in Chicago which means, you pay that $4.50 charge four different times for the round-trip. Next, you... Read More

The arch supports a roadway that goes through it like the slash through a cent sign. Of all the city’s bridges, the Bayonne Bridge is the most powerful and intimate work of modernist-era art. Nothing half as tall stands near it. Sky fills the girders’ interstices and geometries, and above the arch the clouds rise dramatically. The bridge spans the Kill Van Kull, a body of water about two thousand feet across at its widest and about eight hundred fe... Read More
