**Hint for process of elimination: **The problem asked for the price, in cents, of 1000 fluid ounces of diesel fuel. We are told in the problem, and you may also remember from science class, that there are 128 fluid ounces in one gallon. That means there are 1280 fluid ounces in ten gallons. 1000 ounces is a little less than ten gallons, but not much less. It follows that the price in *dollars* of the 1000 fluid ounces is a little less than . Therefore, the price in *cents* of 1000 fluid ounces is a little less than . The only answer with a coefficient of *D* that is close to but less than is choice D.
