You probably are one of the very few. Who else normally goes to a different country on a regular basis to begin with?
We have several US-based users who regularly drive in Canada.

I might add that I am one of those people, but our trips and planning are usually such that we don't have to fuel up in Canada. I would imagine anyone living within a few hours of the border has at least driven in the other country a few times. Everyone with a license, that is.

I live in Connecticut, am middle aged, and have been in Canada thrice. But I've only driven into Canada once.

I happened to fill up at the Speedway on Route 9 in Latham, New York, yesterday afternoon while they were doing their conversion.  The old sign had all grades listed with the style they inherited from the station's days as a Hess.  The new one looks like it will display prices for only the lowest and highest grades.

I've seen 8.88 before. I have never seen 0.00 before, though.

Chevron Signs in the Dallas area are White LED, but the ones around Marshall are Red LED
