In the UK a gallon of water weighs 10 lbs

I am guessing it will be 8 lbs in the US as there is a different definition of the pint and therefore the gallon

That depends on the item being measured. Pounds is a measure of weight/mass and a gallon is a liquid measure. For water it would be about 8 pounds. Mercury would be a lot more!
