The Strange Economics of Travel

Notice lately that you can get dirt cheap US airfares coast-to-coast, like $200, but once you get to the other end, the local cab ride between airport and hotel can run you $100!?!

What's the math about when the 10 mile cab fare is half the cost of a 3,000 mile plane ride?
