Answer:

The price would be #78.7# #c# per litre.

(As a side note, currently in Australia we're paying about twice that.)

Explanation:

Working across unit systems, the fact that there are #4# quarts in a gallon is also relevant.

#1# #L#, then, will be #1.057/4=0.2643# gallons.

The price per litre will be #0.2643xx$2.98=$0.787=78.7# #c#.
