- Not only are gas prices the highest they’ve been since 2014 but domestic airfare in the US has risen by nine percent in the last month. International air fare went up 17 percent. Hotel prices have risen even higher than pre-pandemic rates. For example, Hotel rooms in Cancun, went from $160 in 2019 to $205 per night in early May.
