Researching on the internet, I calculated the cost for diesel in Canada to be about $4.75 (US) per gallon in the Calgary area.

We're planning a trip to the Calgary area for next summer...but if it's $5 per liter, maybe we'll reconsider.

[3.78 x ($ per litre)] / Exchange Rate = $ per US gallon

Example: Vancouver area
[3.78 x 1.369] / 1.13 = 4.58US per US gallon

Tommyb, if you go to the Useful Links page of the FROG website, you'll find links to both the Canada Border Services Agency and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection websites. You should find some helpful information there about crossing the border in both directions.

That pricing is 'per gallon'... the fuel cost is just a bit higher than down here.

Try to hit Calgary during the Stampede (July 3 - 13 th this year I think). It is one awesome event and the whole city transforms!

If you're on Medicare, its coverage doesn't extend over the border. Check your supplemental (commercial) health insurance to see if it gives full coverage in a "foreign" nation. If not, I'd suggest a short-term traveller's coverage. Also, check your drug coverage insurance.

Some employer insurance coverage also is US-only. When I was with Boeing, that wasn't an issue, but it may have changed in the 15 years I've been retired.

We are paying $1.25 per litre right now. That would be approx. $5.50 per gallon.

Price up here has been falling recently and is just under a $1 a litre in Saskatoon. It's a nice bonus but I'm sure that by TT season there will be a remarkable recovery in fuel prices and the normal consumer gouging practice that precedes the long weekends during the summer will undoubtably continue. It's kinda like the seasons and taxes......

Check with your cell phone and internet provider!!!!!!!!! Cost could be very costly, especially Internet.

Check on auto and trailer insurance to be sure you are covered. In our case ten years ago, when we crossed with just our car, the insurance company appreciated us calling ahead of time to let them know.

This is very true. You can also purchase a phone in Canada and pay as you go or possibly purchase a plan depending on your planned length of stay. This will reduce your costs if you plan to use your phone/ data much. When we have travelled we shut the phone side down and use wifi for communication. Many places offer free wifi.

Get put on a U.S./Canada small business plan. If your not they charge $5 a MB for data.

Update on diesel, in Nova Scotia it is $1.02 a ltr so with the exchange it is right around $3 a gallon.
