Yes the price of oil is well below the point that they added the second fuel supplement. Just add it into the fare, we know that's probably what they are going to do anyway.

On Princess, the fuel surcharge is in the cabin price.
It depends on when the fuel is purchased. They don't buy it on the spot market, but rather purchase it in mass quantities months in advance.
Southwest hedged on fuel a few years ago and bought it years out. That is the reason you don't see this on Southwest and also the checked baggage fees.
