We're barely into the new year, but already major airlines are ringing in their first fare increase of the year.

Southwest Airlines started things off Friday, raising fares by $4 to $10 on round trip flights.

Now, United, Delta, American and frontier airlines are matching those fare hikes.

The website, says it's the third price increase in a month's time.

It blames rising fuel costs and greater demand for seats.
