EDISON - If you're planning on flying home for Thanksgiving, get ready to dig a little deeper into your pockets this year.

Travel booking site Travelocity says a review of fares around the holiday showed a nearly 9 percent increase over the same period last year.

Increased demand for seats, along with the fluctuating price of fuel, are pushing up ticket prices. Analysts warn that people who wait until the last minute could add another $200 to a round-trip flight.
