Newark to Dallas - $540???

I am flying Newark to Dallas for a weekend in June next year. Friday to Sunday. Just wondering why the flight would be so high. Should I wait? When is usually the optimal time to book (in advance)? Thanks for any info.

There is no such thing, nobody knows since there's no hard and fast rule.

Might be cheaper to fly out of LGA if possible.

Pretty much it is that price because it is that price. No one can predict if it will go up/down or be the same.

Have you checked Southwest flying into DAL (Love Field). I'm finding fares as low as $320.30 for the second weekend in June. Granted, these are not non-stop flighs, but that's a significant fare difference.

$540 is way over the top IMHO. I wouldn't even pay that to LAX...

June + Friday departures are about as expensive as they come! Suggest you depart on another day and check http://matrix.itasoftware.com/ - you might also try alternate airports in the NYC area such as Westchester or Islip and other close in Texas airports.
