On this side of the pond, fuel prices per gallon are quoted in m$;
I presume they quote m$ per Litre in CA, though it has been long
enough that I cannot be sure what I remember about ON stations....
Presorted bulk mail in the states is priced such that the per-item
rates are not integral cents; you can even buy stamps at rates like
14.xxx ¢. I could see people discussing those using m$ or even µ$.
However, the specific places *I* used m$ were in micropayment

You'll not I didn’t use centi.
