Went down to Abbotsford to grab some bindings for my snowboard and filled up. It was only 4 cents cheaper at 95.9. Gas used to be 15 cents cheaper minimum in Abby.

With all the money you save from the cheaper gas, that ought to be more than enough to cover the extra amounts you gotta pay when you buy wheels/tires from the States.

Nope....
1.5 tanks of gas per month on average = like 30 bucks savings. I'd much rather our dollar mean something in the global economy than that.

well my wheels and tire combo will now cost me at least an extra 300$ right now. as westopher said, the gas savings are minimal and as i buy most my parts from over the boarder it would take a much more significant amount of time for the gas savings to be of any impact towards what im spending extra because the dollar

The strong USD is one of the reasons why I stopped all USD purchases. Time for me to look into EUR sites.

We soon will see our clothes/shoes prices skyrocket.

I wouldn't wait in that line up to fill a tank of gas if it were free. Don't people have any concept of how valuable time is?

Don't Tesla drivers have to wait to charge?


I bet if I owned a Tesla you'd end up socializing with a much more exclusive and wealthy crowd waiting around at charging stations. One very, very overlooked yet compelling reason to own a Tesla. Exclusive social club.

Manufacturing and outsourcing will return to Canada, along with a reduction in cross border consumption. It might not be all bad.

What waste of time?

Today's Itinerary:

7:15 AM Peace Arch = less that 5 minutes southbound regular lanes

1:15 PM Peace Arch = 6 minutes northbound regular lanes

Just gotta know when to go and come back. Bring two jerry cans, shop at Winco, Home Depot, Terra Organics, Harbor Freight, Trader Joes, go to Northwoods Casino for 100 bucks at par........ WIN!
