Partially want to make sure it's viable as opposed to driving back to LAX for flight.

actually it is cheaper if you reserve now because this way you will get winter rates even if you are reserving for the summer but if you will wait till july it will be more expensive as it is summer rates.

obviously not always but most times that would be the case.
btw this would also apply reserving early for some extended holiday weekends as they dont put up the price until a few weeks b4
