Dulles International Airport may be one of the closer airports to Prince William County but it is also one of the most expensive in the country.
According to the Research and Innovative Technology Administration's Bureau of Transportation Statistics' study on American airports. The report studied which were the most expensive to fly out of, as measured by ticket value, taxes and fees.
Dulles ranks number three on the list, with the average cost of a domestic fare ticket at $474.92.
Cost has largely replaced distance as the measure of how hard it is to get around, according to an article on AOL.com
Despite the fact one city maybe closer to another one, the price of airline tickets is unlikely to reflect that geography.
