large recent increase in airfare?

I last flew in September and the price was 300 bucks for one way non-stop flight. Now, in April, it's 600 dollars for the non-stop, and the cheapest flight has a layover, AND is 80 (380) dollars more. Is there a reason for the large increase in flying costs these past 6 months?

I'm just curious -- I mentioned it to a friend, and he said that's why they're flying closer to home, that it was a massive increase they noticed as well.
I'm guessing it's a fuel cost thing? What's the deal? Anybody know of any current troubles in the industry? Is there less subsidization happening? What's up?
