Car rental or day trips from Reykjavik ??

My daughter and I am staying in Reykjavik for 5 nights in June.

Initially, I thought I would book day tours for 3 days, now I'm swaying towards renting a car on arrival in Iceland.

Then driving to

The golden circle

The south coast to Vik

The western route

Will this be too much driving for one person? Would it be more cost effective to take day trips or car rental, taking into account the drive to and from the airport. We might even visit the blue lagoon possibly on arrival en route to Reykjavik.

Is fuel expensive or same as uk?

Thanks in advance

Thanks for making a new topic instead of tailgating on someone else's :-)
