Last minute fares CA Zepher

Looking to travel Glenwood Springs to Denver on Thursday Jan 10, 2019 for a family of three.

fare for today has dropped to $45 (6 hours away)

fare for tomorrow is $70 (30 hours away)

Is the fare likely to drop when we get under 24 hours ?

or

should I just pay the $70 now ?

The chances of it getting lower are about as much as the $70 tickets selling out (and only leaving the $87 flexible fare tickets left.) If the fares drop, you can always call into Amtrak and see about getting a refund for the difference. They may only be able to issue a 75% refund (depending on how the system calculates the refund) but you'd still get some money back.

If you're wanting to travel tomorrow, I'd book now and call if the price drops. Otherwise I'd check a few different dates if you're okay leaving a few days from now and find whatever date is cheapest.

Thank you for the reply, I pulled the trigger and paid for the $70 tickets.
Had a non negotiable date to travel - just a little bit of wishful thinking that I would get the tickets for $45.
