When do you buy your plane tickets?

When do you buy your airplane tickets?  Do you wait until they get close to the dollar amount you want to spend?  Do you wait until 3 months before the trip?  When do you go ahead and buy them?  Any tips?

I wouldn't buy them any less than 3 months before hand.  Make sure you buy them from a site that lets you pick your seats (usually for a small fee) at time of purchase.

 I read somewhere that you will get the best price 6 weeks before your trip.  I don't remember where I read that though.  Most airlines will give you a refund if the price goes down after you book.

I actually just bought my plane tickets yesterday for my trip this month and they had went down from when I looked like 4-5 months ago. When I first looked they were like $130 one way and when I booked yesterday they were $85.

I just keep checking until I find the price I want.  When we went last year in January I acutally bought them a week before we left.  We had planned on driving but I happend to get an email from Airtran and the price for 4 round trip tickets was going to be cheaper than renting a car & driving from Michigan.

When I feel comfortable with the price. I have done it 2 months and this time I did it at 5 months. I was worried about the rising cost of gas and ticket prices.
