breakdown of bill/receipt

Have you ever looked at your air tickets closely? Or for that matter any bills.. be it water bill, electricity, cell phone, etc.

We are getting ripped off by these companies who generally do not provide detailed break up of the amount they are charging.

This air ticket I purchased in December last year shocked me when I saw 40% of what I paid are "taxes, fees, and surcharges".
