1 Canadian dollar = 0.994233 U.S. dollars

Value of Canadian dollar in US dollars, Jan 27/08

I’m sure there are quite a few more factors in determining prices than I am aware, but come on. $10 more to buy the exact same book, with the same isbn, when the difference between the Canadian and US dollars differ by LESS THAN A CENT??

It seems these prices are appropriate for a couple of years ago, not today.

Why are we paying so much more?
