So the airlines can advertise fares which are lower than you actually have
to pay.

But fuel is at reduced prices now
the dollar is very low ergo the price in dollars of fuel is much cheaper and
as far as i know there is no crisis anymore.
where all the Consumers' Associations ??

are they sleeping ??

who is getting this money actually ???

nothing to do with tax on fuel.
it is an overprice due to the war in Iraq and oil shortage
