Enter the total amount of fuel needed (gallons) and the cost of fuel ($/gallon) into the Fuel Price Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Fuel Price. 

Fuel Price Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Fuel Price. 

FP = FN * CF

  • Where FP is the Fuel Price ($)
  • FN is the total amount of fuel needed (gallons) 
  • CF is the cost of fuel ($/gallon) 

How to Calculate Fuel Price?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Fuel Price.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total amount of fuel needed (gallons). 
    1. The total amount of fuel needed (gallons) is given as: 250.
  2. Next, determine the cost of fuel ($/gallon). 
    1. The cost of fuel ($/gallon) is provided as: 3.00.
  3. Finally, calculate the Fuel Price using the equation above: 

FP = FN * CF

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

FP = 250 * 3.00 = 750.00 ($)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total amount of fuel needed (gallons) = 750

cost of fuel ($/gallon) = 4.00

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.
