Day of the week for the best price

I just noticed the flights I want from ny to Portland went up by $100 overnight. I looked Wednesday. Today is Thursday. Should I just book them (travel early-mid august) or should I wait till next tuesday or Wednesday because I've read those days have the best prices. I'm afraid if I wait the price will go up more. Advice? Thanks.

That is exactly what they want you to think. Unfortunately airline prices change frequently - both up and down. There is nothing magical about when to buy. If there was, everyone would do it. Some say to clear out cookies so that the site doesn't know that you looked earlier. That idea has been dis-proven but who knows.

Time is getting short so you might wait a week but who knows.

Urban legend.

What you do is . . . when you find a fare you can afford/looks decent to you, book it and then don't look again (except for Southwest which doesn't charge for changes)
