Continental airline says it may impose a $15 fee for checking just one bag, to help counter the soaring cost of fuel.

But Continental's CEO says he wants to want and see wait how other airlines are affected, which are already charging the fee. He's worried the extra charge will cause delays in boarding the plane.

American was the first major carrier to charge travelers for checking one bag. United, and U.S. Airways followed.
