    Yes, that's what the .04 means.

    At the time of that quote, the Canadian dollar was worth 95.9 cents U.S.

    $1 / 1.0431 = $0.95.9

    Perhaps they simply have a "wait and see" attitude toward the exchange rate.
    But the consumer says: I have waited, have seen, and have seen enough!
    So now the retailer is getting "ripped off" or facing his own demise.
    Cross border shopping is going up at exponential rates.

    It is so sad to see the death of the U.S. dollar. But that is what happens when the Federal Reserve has been following a profligate money supply policy for quite a while.
