Argentina frontman Aguero was one of a number of outstanding City players in Sunday's FA Cup semi-final win over Chelsea.
Aguero did also court controversy, but has escaped retrospective action over a two-footed challenge on David Luiz, and now wants to make sure City keep up the intensity of the past week.
City followed up last Monday's defeat of Manchester United with an all-action display against Chelsea at Wembley and were rewarded with a 2-1 win and a final date against Wigan.
Aguero said: "It was a very big pitch at Wembley, and we are a team that works very hard - and that means we are all very tired.
"But yes, we have a lot of energy. We will all be able to give our all until the season ends, so that we can finish on a high, finishing well in the league and winning the cup."
Aguero, who scored the winner at Old Trafford last week, starred in the latest victory by setting up Samir Nasri's opening goal and heading the second himself.
The downside was an over-exuberant tackle on Luiz in the closing minutes as City fought off the Chelsea fightback sparked by Demba Ba's goal.
A free-kick was awarded by referee Chris Foy at the time and the Football Association has confirmed there will be no further action as the matter is considered to have been dealt with.
City are now anxious to secure the FA Cup to gain some consolation after their disappointing campaigns in the Premier League and UEFA Champions League.
When asked if the season could be viewed a success with cup victory, Aguero said: "In a sense, yes, but in another you have to remember that we have a great team, a strong squad, that is capable of fighting to win more trophies.
"We could have done better. It is a club that has not won a lot in the past and at least if we win one trophy then everything is good for the club."
He added: "We're really happy to be in the final. It was what we wanted from the game.
"It's crucial that we try to win something every year, whether that's a cup or the league.
"This year, we cannot win the league, we are too far away, but this is an important cup in England, for the club, and for everyone."
