Italy: 1.684 euros per liter Wichita: 2.99 dollars per gallon It is cheaper in Wichita because 1.684 euros per liter equals 8.48 dollars per gallon. 10. 11. 12. The main difference between the metric and the standard system is where they originated. The standard system was created by the Egyptians before the metric system was created. The standard system was based on the length of hands, toes and weight of stones. The more modern metric system, is based on multiples of tens. The United States does not use the metric system because of an effort to change to metric in the 1970's. That effort failed because the cost and effort to change the equipment was too great. However, nowadays, companies use the metric and standard system on most products. Scientists prefer to use the metric system due to it's global application. It is much simpler to perform calculations on the metric system as it's based on 10s. The metric system also has four units meters, grams, liters, and candelas. This makes it easier for other scientists to work together and understand each other. 60 x 1.60934=
