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)
