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 one-half of an imperial gallon equals about 9.6 U.S. cups.
