"High gas prices are pushing sales of scooters. The Motorcycle Industry Council, a trade group, said scooter sales in the first quarter rose 21 percent from a year earlier, with sales of Vespa and Piaggio scooters up 72 percent.
Here's why: A scooter gets as much as 60 miles to the gallon, meaning it can travel more than 120 miles on a single fill-up of a typical 2.5-gallon tank. The average SUV will travel about 30 miles on the same amount of fuel."
