**Answer:**

The gas cost for the Camry will be $ 150.

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Since in planning a Thanksgiving vacation, you want to rent a car for a week and travel the Pacific Highway from San Francisco to San Diego, and you want to return to San Francisco via Las Vegas, Death Valley, and Yosemite National Park, and this trip covers approximately 1,500 miles, and you plan to return the car with a full tank of gasoline and are considering two options advertised by Hertz:

Toyota Camry, 40 mpg highway, costs $ 448.27 plus taxes and fees, totaling $ 533.65.

Toyota Prius Hybrid, 49 mpg highway, costs $ 610.58 plus taxes and fees, totaling $ 772.88.

In both cases, you must purchase gasoline, which costs $ 4.00 per gallon in California.

To determine the total cost of gasoline for the Camry, the following calculation must be performed:

(1,500 / 40) x 4 = X

37.5 x 4 = X

150 = X

Therefore, the gas cost for the Camry will be $ 150.
