Enter the gas usage rate and the cost of gas into the calculator to determine the gas lantern cost per hour.

## Gas Lantern Cost Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Gas Lantern Cost.

GLC = GU * GC

- Where Where GLC is the cost to run the lantern per hour ($/hour)
- GU is the gas usage rate (gallons or propane/hour)
- GC is the cost of the propane ($/gallon)

To calculate the gas lantern cost, multiply the gas usage rate by the cost of the gas.

## What is a Gas Lantern Cost?

Definition:

A gas lantern cost is a measure of the total cost of the propane a gas lantern uses per unit of time.

## How to Calculate Gas Lantern Cost?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Gas Lantern Cost.

First, determine the usage rate. For this example, the gas lantern usage rate is 2 gallons per hour.

Next, determine the cost of propane. In this case, the propane costs $4.00 / gallon.

Finally, calculate the lantern run cost using the formula above:

GLC = GU * GC

GLC = 4*2

GLC = $8/hour
