Boom goes the Dynamic Ticket Pricing

A little more than ten years ago I lived Eastern Europe for a while and internet access was not the sort of thing you took for granted. Usually you'd go to a cafe if you wanted to send somebody an email. Often times the owner's kid would have filled the screen with porn site pop up ads, and it would take you 40 czech korunas worth of internet access just to clear them out.

Once I took a trip to London where I went to an internet cafe called EasyEverything (which was a sister company to EasyJet). EasyEverything was unique in that it was open 24 hours a day, and offered dynamically changing rates for internet access. Middle of the night? Cheap craigslist missed connections. Lunch break? Expensive ebay shopping. It was orange and impersonal and it felt like the future.

Fast forward a decade, and dynamically fluctuating ticket prices have come to Oakland.

I'm wondering if people any dynamic ticket buying experiences they'd like to share: in your experience do ticket prices come down as game day approaches or do they go up? Is there a sweet spot a few weeks out? Any great deals? Any terrible ones?

At the end of the day this is s a pretty self-serving post: I'm coming to town this weekend and I'm planning on going to the game on Sunday. Should I buy tickets now? Later? Will the Raging Gnome giveaway ensure my tickets are more expensive than I'm used to? Will fathers' day? Is there any sense in waiting till the last minute?
