Yeah, but is there any reason airfare just shot up over 200 dollars? And will it go down? If tickets are now close to 1000 bucks, I'm basically sunk. Are they likely to come down at all? Any advice is appreciated.

Well, it is nice there now...and during high season (best weather) air fare is usually more expensive. Just like flying to Paris from the U.S. is much cheaper in the winter time. I would give it at least another month...But just so you know...because of skyrocketing gas/oil prices...almost all air fares have gone up somewhat...
Much luck to you!

It's kind of confusing though. It seems like if the high season is now, then airfare now would be expensive, but airfare booked for later days should still be cheap. It seems like during the high season, airfare is expensive no matter what date you book for. What I'm thinking, is that there's a best time to book a flight for any date, rather than specific dates that are always cheaper to book for. Is there any truth to this?

Well, travelling midweek (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) is usually cheaper for both departures and returns. Sundays are generally bad because that is when everyone is trying to get home (before work or school on Monday) It is confusing, but I really would sit on it a little longer..now is just not a good time. :(
