Well actually, it's when you do your traveling on the highway that it's more economic for your car, when you always do town traveling, your fuel consumption almost doubles!!!

Electricity and other energy is also much moreabundant in Canada, and is also less expensive.
Actually it's false. The Americans pay much less for their electricity even if it is our own they buy... They signed a contract many many years ago that the cost for electricity they imported from Canada wouln't budge for 100 years.... So at the moment they pay less than we do for our own cdn product...
