He is asking the ARF community of money managers this question:

$1.11 a liter (Canadian money)
OR
$2.88 a gallon (US money)

Which is the "better deal".

Oh yea, his initials are CV.

Since a liter is about a quart, and there are four quarts in a gallon, we still have the better deal by far.

$3.82 USD/per gallon at their prices converted to US dollars.

I've NEVER seen gas be cheaper in Canada than in the US.

1 gallon = 3.77 liters

$1 US = $1.20 CD

Convert $CD to $US ($1.11 x 1.2)

Canadian gas is $1.33 US per liter

You have to buy 3.77 liters of gas to equal a gallon ($1.33 x 3.77)

So Canadian gas is $5.01 US a gallon.

Is my math right? If so that SUCKS!

CavVet?

3.785 liters per gallon

Your math is wrong. It'd be 1.11 x .8 to convert to USD. Basic rundown, $4 CDN for a gallon, ends up being about $3.20 USD per gallon.

Why would somebody "defect" to Canada?

Couldn't they just move there?

Keep in mind, we ain't far behind that, something to the tune of 18.4 cents to the gallon, and that is just federal tax, not state.

Ours isn't that bad yet but most people don't know how much they're taxed on gasoline.

"Together Federal and State excise taxes on fuel account for an average cost of approximately 62 cents per gallon."

Always fill up on the US side of the border, and >5 miles from the border. CV should stop at the gas station at exit #266 on the way up, and then on the way back....

A pittance dude...
Right now reg gas is about .95 a litre 'round my place or call it $4 a Gallon.... so at 53% we're paying over $2 per gallon in tax... I laugh at your 62cents in gas tax...

Thanks LGB & the math guys!!!! Exit 266 it is!!!


I didnt say anything about defection.


The first hippy-liberal-frog car driver sleeps too damn much to know truth from fiction, and Phil is jealous his GF is making him move to New Jersey.


Hey Phil, give you $50 cash for those guns you cant have there!


And the Japanese girls were not illegal, although some of what they did may be.
