      farecast.com does the same; it "forecasts" fare ups/downs. One more site: studentuniverse.com if you are a student. Seasoned travelers know about it but so do the airlines! One trick I have seen clearly is if you keep searching for a flight over and over to check prices, the cookies on your computer will show the same prices or higher. I often search from different computers or even clear my cache/browsing history etc. and start fresh. This I have clearly seen make a difference...not always but many times.
