Makes good economic sense

My wife and I are both UNCW students and both double-majors. We're choosing to get a scooter mainly to drive back and forth to campus (about 5.4 miles round-trip). With gas today reaching $3.99(9), it's time to say no to OPEC, even if that comes with an unfortunate decrease in safety. My car gets 30 mpg so 30 mpg / 5.4 miles = 5.5 campus-home round trips on one gallon, but a scooter that gets 80 mpg gets 14.8 campus-home round trips on one gallon! (don't expect to get the 100+ mpg the manual states) I will soon be filling-up less often and paying only the cost of 1.3 gallons. Drew Barfield
