How Low can the dollar go...

Canadian dollar is worth .78 cents US today. Travel plans may be north of 49 for this summer. Hope it rebounds prior to Goshen.

Will save the difference in fuel costs, must admit though I was just thinking it would be nice if Goshen registration gets posted soon before we are paying double.

We're already committed to 3 weeks in Florida in a few weeks and a trip to Chicagoland at the end of August, but I view it the same way DDC does... since the cause of the lower dollar is the collapse of oil prices, the reduced diesel fuel cost will go a long way to offset the $$$ exchange.

Looks like the Trend is still going the wrong way if traveling out of the country. $1.25 US vs the Loon. Just gut it up and go. We have a May trip to St Maartin planned, but at least it isn't the Grand Caymans.

Presently the loonie at .80 USD, would have to do alot of math to see if worthwhile other than to stay in the local area. Different if doing the snowbird thing and going to the deep south for the winter to soak up the sun. Today filled up/topped up my F150 for .96/L Cdn which is golden compared to 1.35/L before this oil thing started. I was realy hoping the gas prices would stay low for camping season.

Went to COSTCO, everything else is three cents more a litre. I don't get why in the morning it is 1.06 and after lunch it is 96 to 99 and it is every station, not like they called each other and said "OK jack it up".

What kills me is that they are playing around with pricing of fuel that is still in the under ground tanks at the station.
