The gasPrice is return in Wei. One ETH equals 10e18 wei.

The gas fee is calculated by gas limit x gas price per unit. So, if the gas limit is 20,000 and the gas price per unit is 200, then the calculation would be 20,000 x 200 = 4,000,000 gwei. We mentioned above that one gwei is equal to 0.000000001 ETH. So, this transaction cost would be approximately 0.004 ETH.
