    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?

    I'd rather go to Montreal and spend the day with an escort. Ain't nothing jumping off in the states.

    I'd stay in Canada.
    ****, I live in USA right now and I wanna move to Canada.

    I ain't really rocking with America right now, but it's convenient. Kinda like when your with a girl for 10 years, been living with Her for 5 so you might as well marry shorty
