How expensive is airplane fuel?

The average cost of aviation fuel is around $5.50 per gallon. Multiply the useable fuel capacity of 37.5 gallons to the price of $5.50 and you get $206.25. The average fuel consumption of the Cessna 152 is 25 liters per hour, or around 7 gallons per hour at an average cruising speed of 110 MPH.

Similarly one may ask, how much is a gallon of aviation fuel?

As of Monday afternoon, Jet-A is selling to corporate jets for an average of $5.21 per gallon. (Fuel is usually more expensive on the coasts and cheaper in the Midwest.) Because the cost of Jet-A closely tracks the price of a barrel of oil, fuel costs for private jets have quadrupled since 2000.

How much does it cost in fuel to fly a 747?

A 747 can seat 380 to 560 people, depending on how an airline sets it up. A full one is a moneymaker. But an airline that can't fill all the seats has to spread the cost of 63,000 gallons of jet fuel -- roughly $200,000 -- among fewer passengers.
