Scooter Sales Up

With gas prices reaching record highs people are finding alternative ways to commute.

More consumers are finding that two wheels are better than four, and opt to trade in their gas-guzzler for a scooter.

Some scooters can get more than 50 miles per gallon, which represents a huge savings when compared to conventional automobiles.

However, the radical rides do have one major drawback; they can only accelerate to 35 miles per hour.

Most people use scooters for short commutes since it is an inexpensive option.

Some scooter dealers in Illinois have seen a steady sales increase of three hundred percent over the last six months.
