A gallon is abbreviated as gal; a tablespoon has an abbreviation tbsp, T, tbs, and occasionally tblspn.

1 US tablespoon equals 3 teaspoons, 4 fluid drams, 1/16 cup, ½ fluid ounces, 0.03 US liquid pint, 0.000014787 cubic meters, or 14.8 milliliters.
1 Imperial tablespoon equals 3 imperial teaspoons, 0.06 Imperial cups, 0.625 imperial fluid ounces, 0.03 Imperial pint, or 18 milliliters.

One metric tablespoon equals 15 ml. The Canadian tablespoon is also 15 ml in size, having been swapped out for the metric system back in 1971 when Canada went fully metric.
Australian tablespoon is different: one Australian tablespoon equals ⅔ fl oz, four teaspoons, two dessert spoons, or 20 ml.
A gallon is a volume unit in the US customary system. But you shouldn't confuse a US liquid gallon with a dry gallon to measure dry ingredients and an Imperial gallon (aka British gallon).
