Hipmunk has released some new data showing that October is your most affordable time for a weekend getaway from now until the end of 2012. And this weekend is the cheapest weekend to get away. And the cheapest city to get away to on that weekend is St. Louis, where average fares from the country’s busiest airport start at just $59. In November, the weekends of the second and ninth are the most affordable options. After that the minimum price can jump by as much as 700 percent.

The sale ends at 11:59 pm CT on Wednesday, October 3.
