A woman drags her suitcases in London, England. The Bureau of Transportation Statistics reports U.S. passengers spent $3.36 billion in 2011 on both checked and carry-on bag fees while traveling. - 

This final note today, in which we learn -- not for the first time -- that those baggage fees really add up.

From the Associated Press today comes this number: $3.36 billion. That, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, is how much we collectively paid in checked and carry-on bag fees last year. And it is, believe it or not, down from 2010.

Airfares last year? Up 10 percent from a year ago.
