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?

• Math - ,

\$1.00 * 3.79 = ?

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

• Math - ,

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)

A gas station purchases gasoline from a refinery at the unit price of \$3.20 per gallon and sells it to their customers at \$3.68 per gallon.

What is the percent markup?
