The President of the United States has made foreign policy a primary focus during his two terms. Barack Obama is one of four presidents to visit Vietnam, and the only president to visit Hiroshima Japan. Both trips occurred last week.

So, what is the cost of these trips?

Air Force One, the private Boeing Co (NYSE: BA) of the president, costs Americans $206,337 for every hour the plane is in the air, according to a Freedom Of Information Act.

President Obama has traveled internationally more than any other president on the most expensive Air Force One to date. A short trip to upstate New York's Martha's Vineyard costs $619,011.00.
