$US vs. $CAD
Gas is up 85% in the past 5 years.
Dollar is down 65% in the past 5 years.
Next time you curse Exxon, or next time you hear a politician talk about "doing something about gas prices" think about this. Politicians can tax Exxon at 100% and it won't make a damn bit of difference. As long as the US continues to live on borrowed money, the dollar will slide and gas prices will go up.
