I just looked at the exchange rate It's $1CAD = $0.73USD this forum is predominantly American. Let's pretend you're on that other side of the border. Would you take a road trip to continental USA In terms of gas, it's litres vs gallons I'm paying around $1.19CAD/L currently After doing the math and seeing that it's around $2.45USD/gallon That comes out to around a comparable $0.88CAD/L Accommodation: Even with Airbnb, it's at least $90-100CAD per night Food: You could go to the local grocery store. And then a night or two treat yourself to the fine cuisine of Olive Garden and Applebee's The exchange rate is just way too big of a gap from where I'm standing. How do you look at it?
