Help me with math! How much does it cost to run my intex pool pump?

I found a few sites that let me put numbers in to calculate cost of electricity for my intex pool pump but I'm getting roughly $100+ per month if I ran the pump 24/7, is that accurate?

I have the Intex 26651EG 3000 GPH sand filter pump

I read on the site that I bought the pump from that it was .75hp...but I took a few pics (attached) of the tags on the motor and it says .59 I'm not sure that even matters.

Can someone do the math for me and give me an idea of what it costs to run this pump for an hour or maybe 24 hours straight? I believe my price per kwh is around .12.
