Dallas, TX -- Southwest Airlines and Love Field haven't had the best week, but that is not the case for the other airport in DFW.

Cheapflights.com made a list of airports around the country with the most round trips.

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport ranks second on the list, with the average round trip costing you $203 after taxes.

#1 on the list is Daugherty Field in Long Beach, California. The average price for a round trip there is $202.

Love Field in Dallas took a big hit and dropped from #3 last year to #48 this year. On average, customers pay $320 dollars for a round trip out of Love.

The disappointing report comes less than a week after Southwest experienced technical difficulties. The problems delayed or canceled thousands of flights. The technical glitch is fixed, but there were still several delayed flights as of Friday afternoon.

If you're wondering what is behind the dropping prices for round trips around the country, it is from smaller airlines dropping their prices to be more competitive with larger airlines.
