Enter the total cost of the gravel and the weight of the gravel into the calculator to determine the gravel cost per ton.

Gravel Cost Per Ton Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Gravel Cost Per Ton.

GCT = GC / (W/2000)
  • Where GCT is the gravel cost per ton ($/ton)
  • GC is the total gravel cost ($)
  • W is the weight of gravel (lbs)

To calculate the gravel cost per ton, divide the total cost of the gravel by it’s weight in pounds, then divide by 2000.

What is the Average Gravel Cost Per Ton?

The average cost per ton of gravel is approximately $35.00 to $50.00 per ton.

The average price for gravel per ton depends on many factors including:

-The size of the gravel

-How much gravel is needed for your project

-The distance from where it was mined to its final destination

In general, the larger the stone you are purchasing, the cheaper its cost per ton will be.

For example, if you need a lot of 1/2 inch gravel for a driveway project, you might pay much more than if you needed a lot of 3 inch stone. The larger stones are usually cheaper per ton because they do not need to

Gravel is used for a variety of purposes, such as:

  • Driveways and walkways
  • Landscaping
  • Filler for Buildings
  • Stabilizing Soil
  • Underneath Foundations

Knowing the price of the gravel per ton can help with budgeting for any of these types of projects.
