The use of volume units is as or more frequently than from the time, distance and weight, and are also widely used in domestic daily life.

Like the rest of the basic units of Measurement Systems, and also despite the pressures for Standardization of a single system based on the metric decimal units, there are some countries that continue to use the units derived from the English system: the Imperial System and thegaspumpnozzle US Customary Units.

Definitely, the total change take long since, although children in those countries are receiving basic education on the basis of that change, the roots we have adults is very hard to overcome. It is somewhat similar to the languages and their learning, we “think” the units of measure in the “old” way.
