Loc-Line 40413 Coolant Hose Assembly Kit, Acetal Copolymer, 7 Piece, 1/4" Coolant Hose ID
Assuming an exchange rate of about 1.33, the price in Canadian dollars for the Amazon.com item is 9.72. The price in Canadian dollars for the same item on Amazon.ca is 22.71, a difference of 12.99 Canadian.
The same item is 17.09 Canadian on grainger.ca.
The exchange rate "mark up" advantage works in the favor of both American and Canadian companies.
I recall seeing the same sort of "differential" when looking at the price of books and magazines years ago, when the prices were listed in both American and Canadian dollars.
