Is it true cheaper tickets available on airline websites at 12:01am?

I've heard that purchasing tickets on discount airline websites are at their absolute cheapest on Wednesday morning (just after midnight in the time zone of the airlines HQ). Is there any truth to that? Thanks.

Sounds like an interesting proposition and loosely based on a bit of logic that at 12.01am the demand is going to be less than at 3pm say the same day.

However I can't see it as being true because it isn't really that workable.

I really don't know, but I doubt it.
Ticket prices are based on how full the plane is at that moment and mostly the planes are fuller once you are closer to the date you want to fly. So I don't see why a ticket for next month for example would be cheaper for the same day just after midnight. It might be true for the same or next day though
