If the price of gasoline in Germany is about $1 per liter, what is the equivalent price of gasoline in dollars per gallon?

I know that

1 gallon =3.79 liter

l liter= 0.26 gallon

but I am not sure how to figure the cost?

$1.00 * 3.79 = ?

You must have an old book. The current German price of gasoline per gallon is $7.08.

1 litre costs $1

so 3.79 litres cost $3.79

but 3.79 litres = 1 US gallon

so it costs $3.79 per gallon

(BTW, it is much more expensive than that in Germany.

They are currently paying about $7 per US gallon)
