Try a scooter?

Filed under: Cars,Economy,General — ramsblog @ 2:17 pm

When I arrived in the US several years ago, I was puzzled to see no 2-wheelers on roads. I was riding with a co-worker of my consulting company in New Jersey, and asked what I thought was a logical question – “do people here get on motor cycles, scooters in summer when the weather is nice?” I had arrived here in winter. So she said, not necessarily, people would still use the Cars and not many motor cycles unless it is their hobby to ride motorcycles. hmmm… I said, ok and switched to different conversation… Back then, a gallon of gasoline would cost about 90cents or a little over a dollar. It remained that way for few years until mid late 2004 when it started around $1.60 or $1.80.

anyways, now that the gas nearing $4.70 (~$5), I am seeing lot many 2-wheelers on local roads and many articles describing the what-if analysis; buy-lease analysis etc
