Flying to Tally is not cheap



Hurry and you might catch the air fare bargain of the year.

Tampa to Tallahassee and back for a mere $270. Yesterday, the deal was good only for Wednesday and Thursday of next week. After that, the cheapest seat shoots up to $401. Any earlier and you'd pay something north of $600.

"You could take a trip to Europe and back for that," says state Sen. Michael Fasano, R-New Port Richey, who makes the flight each week while the Legislature is in session. "New York is much cheaper. You can fly for half that amount to Washington, D.C."

Read about the reason why.
