    Appreciate your good fortune...

    I live in BC, Canada. I love cars. Just wanted to make those of you in the US appreciate the fact that you do not have to deal with the above two contrasting elements. Why contrasting? BC has a tax whereby, if a car is over $150K CAD (about $115K USD), you must pay 26% tax on it. Also, $1.70/ltr of gas... about $4.70/gallon USD.I love doing my share to assist, but man, that is painful!I know that there are other parts of the world that are even worse, so please do not take this as a complaint... but just a fun Friday fact to share with friends.PW

    Near our home in Northern CA gasoline is currently $4.45/gal, so we’re apparently trying to catch up with our friends to the North. I also hope there is a little relief with the 26% tax only applied to any amount over the $150K CAD threshold.
    My Best,

    The tax is one time, but basically 21% for anything between 125-150 CAD and 26% for anything above 150K. And, wow - 4.45 in California. Anyway, it is what it is and we motor on!
