Don't mean to butt in here, but gas is measured in liters in Canada. Multiply the cost by 3.8 and you'll know the cost per gallon. It's a bit more expensive up there; fuel, food and lodging.

edit: Since I'm butting in here, I'll tell a story. I was on a ride to Hyder and stopped in a town after crossing the border to change some money and get lunch. Went into a small grocery and asked whether they could make a sandwich. The girl said, "Sure." I told her I wanted one with about a quarter pound of meat on it and she said, "How much is that?" I should have known better, since I've been married to a Canadian for 30 years, but I replied, "You know, four ounces." Then she started doing the math. "Let's see, that works out to about 113 grams. Is that what you want?" I smacked my head and said, "Yup." She made a heck of a sandwich while we talked about why the US doesn't use the metric system.
