How do you figure?

I purchase a round trip ticket to Chicago one week ago. I found a mid morning flight out of ILM for $90 on US Air and a return in the morning for $184. It would cost me right at $120 in gas to fill up and drive round trip to RDU. Then I could save, $20 on my return trip thus sepnd $160 extra to drive to Raleigh to catch a flight. Depending on where I fly (And I use US Air web site to find and purchase tickets)There is LESS that a $100 difference (usually less than a $60 difference) on my total round trip price. SO again, HOW do you figure it is cheaper to DRIVE to RDU and THEN catch a flight? Your comment absolutely makes no sense. I will give you that it could change in the future, but for now, gas is to expensive to drive to RDU and does not offset the cost. I get no discount for flying frequesntly on my purchases. I pay the exact same as you would using the US Air Web Site.... Cheaper to drive..... HUH!
