Gonna fly Southwest airlines in one wee, last min. Flight from L.A. to Phoenix, 300 dolllars round trip. Good deal or expensive?

Kind of expensive, unless you just bought your ticket today. I've flown MUCH longer distances for half of what you paid.

Whoa, that sounds way too high. LAX to PHX is not that far. You should find something on WN for about $200 round trip. Actually just looked it up. Check this out:

Probably not WN airlines, but are you locked into them?

I say that you’re paying way more than you should for that city pairing. You should have payed for that flight a while ago for much cheaper airfare than you are paying now.

Southwest fares generally go up at the last minute

The price is the price.
Cheaper tickets are available for other flights and other days of travel.
ONLY YOU can place a value on a flight going at the time you want.
Some flights do get full. Frequent visits to the same site can get a higher price as they check your cookies to see how eager you are for a particular flight.
$300 round trip is not bad. There are many flights that have seats for much more and a few have it for a lower price.50 cents per mile to haul you back and forth seems reasonable.
You can drive yourself for about $80. worth of gas. and about 14 hours behind the wheel time.

Probably, you could have got a better price if you booked earlier.

A bit pricey. If you hadn't have bought last minute, you could have gotten a round trip for about $175 (just looking at their low price calendar).

Sounds kind of pricey to me - that's usually a pretty cheap flight, even on the regular carriers. Southwest markets itself as a discount carrier, so that seems especially high. But booking last-minute tickets usually results in a higher fare, so that's likely what happened here.
