Etherscan api: how to get transaction fee?

For example: open this https://etherscan.io/tx/0xcb1e3530950cf2c43a307bcb5645ae71a12c76a60831617badd04aea3efe68aa

It’s a random one

I see these infos on webpage:

Gas Limit:
136,500

Gas Used by Transaction:
35,531 (26.03%)

Gas Price:
0.000000008 Ether (8 Gwei)

Transaction Fee:
0.000284248 Ether ($0.05)

I know that fee = gas_price x used_gas => 0.000000008 x 35,531 = 0.000284248 eth

Perfect.

I am interested in reading, via api the Transaction Fee converted in real money, like you see there is a $0.05

I am not able a single api call the returns this info on Etherscan.

What can I do to have this info?

Calling

https://api.etherscan.io/api?module=proxy&action=eth_getTransactionByHash&txhash=0xcb1e3530950cf2c43a307bcb5645ae71a12c76a60831617badd04aea3efe68aa&apikey=your_api_key

I get only these infos

}

Where

"gas": "0x21534" => in decimal is 136,500 [gas limit]

"gasPrice"○: "0x1dcd65000" => in decimal is 8,000,000,000 [gas price]

I tried also calling
https://api.etherscan.io/api?module=proxy&action=eth_getTransactionReceipt&txhash=0xcb1e3530950cf2c43a307bcb5645ae71a12c76a60831617badd04aea3efe68aa&apikey=your_api_key

This is the result

    "transactionIndex": "0x4e"
  }
}

Here I have

"cumulativeGasUsed": "0x778412"  => 7,832,594 [ what  ??? ]
"gasUsed": "0x8acb"              => 35,531    [ gas used by this transaction]

So to reconstruct the webpage info I need 2 api call, to retrieve gas price and gas used.

but i have no quotation of eth, and this is really what I need
