Airline ticket prices drop to lowest level in 6 years

The cost of an airline ticket has dropped to its lowest level in six years.

According to the Transportation Department, the average price for a domestic ticket is now about $372.

Officials say the expansion of low-cost airlines and a drop in jet fuel costs are big reasons for cheaper airfares.
