I live quite near the Canada/US border and a friend of mine suggested that by buying in the states I may be able to save quite a bit of money. Any idea what the border crossing "hoops" are that one has to jump through if bringing a vehicle purchased in the States into Canada?

will the Canadian dealer where you didn't buy honor the warranty. Will the U.S. built vehicle have speedometer/odometer in U.S. measure vs. metric?

The gas companies have been making record profits during this current 'gas crisis'. Eliminating the demand for gasoline will no doubt lower prices for gas, allowing for more growth for the economy.

Instead of driving 4 blocks to the grocery store, walk or bike. If possible take public transportation or car pool. The less 'one-person-carpools' that are out there the better. Not only will it indirectly affect our economy (lowering gas prices) but it will be better for our environment. Just think - cleaner air, less smog, less congestion, etc.

Assuming the market is efficient, then buying the gas at a different location does not change the demand for the gas. So price remain same.

Yes gas prices are high a worrisome..but there may be a way to bring them down.

Car pooling may not be for everybody, but people that work in industrila areas might just find it a workable way to save money.
