gallons to cubic yards
Understanding Gallons and Cubic Yards
Gallons and cubic yards are both units of volume, but they are used to measure different capacities. Gallons are commonly used for smaller volumes, especially in contexts like fuel, liquid substances, and smaller containers. On the other hand, cubic yards are used for larger volumes, often for measuring bulk materials like concrete, soil, or mulch.

Gallon (gal): A gallon is a unit of volume measurement widely used in the United States for measuring liquid substances like gasoline, milk, and water. The symbol for gallon is "gal."

Cubic Yard (yd³): The cubic yard is a unit of volume that is commonly used in the United States and the UK. It is used to measure large volumes of materials such as concrete, soil, or mulch. The symbol for cubic yard is "yd³."
