With gas prices stubbornly high, saving money at the pump this summer is on many drivers’ minds. For some, that means yet again reconsidering the SUV in favor of a smaller vehicle or even a hybrid. Others may go even further in their quest for fuel efficiency.

With its 75 mpg, a scooter will without a doubt save you tons at the pump — if it’s right for your lifestyle, of course. And consider this: if 20% of the vehicles driven in New York City during daytime hours were replaced by scooters, drivers could see a total decrease in traffic delays saving nearly 100 working hours per person per year, resulting in more than $122 million in savings for the city in fuel and labor productivity.
