There are 8 cups in half of one U.S. gallon. This means that a half gallon is also equivalent to 2 quarts. In the U.S., milk and other liquids are often sold in standard halfgallon or gallon jugs.
Another gallon measurement is the dry gallon, which is used mostly in America. One dry gallon equals around 1.16 U.S. gallons, and therefore a half of a dry gallon equals around 9.3 cups.
The British have a measurement called the imperial gallon, which is quite different from the American gallon. One imperial gallon equals roughly 1.20 U.S. gallons, and therefore onehalf of an imperial gallon equals about 9.6 U.S. cups.
A gallon has 16 cups so a half gallon would have 8 cups. 8 cups. 1 gallon = 16 cups. 1 cup = 0.06 gallon.
