16 cups are in one gallon.
For the visual learners, here's a diagram I found to be really helpful: http://healingcrohnsdisease...
Sure, you might know that it's 16 cups from what others have mentioned here, but you'll also want to "see it" when it comes to the relationship between cups, gallons, quarts, and pints (that's where the fun part comes in!).
1 gallon = 4 quarts = 16 cups = 196 tablespoons = 768 teaspoons
1 quart = 4 cups =
1 cup = 16 tablespoons
1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons
That's a US gallon. In Canada we used to use quarts & gallons, in the same ratio, but with Imperial measure: 5 cups per quart, 4 quarts per gallon, so 20 cups per gallon. If you are using a Canadian or British recipe, this is your answer.

There are 4 fluid cups to one quart. There are 4 fluid quarts to one gallon. 4 x 4 = 16.
To calculate a value in gallons to the corresponding value in cups, just multiply the quantity in gallons by 16 (the conversion factor).
Value in cups = value in gallons × 16
