Are you absolutely disgusted with the high price of gas and have you decided that enough is enough? Good! That means you finally may be ready to do something about it! Okay, okay. Hard talk makes us "feel" better for about a second or two. What can we really do about it? Truth be told there really isn't much any of us can do about the stranglehold that we are all caught in. Sadly, we have created this problem and there just isn't any easy way out. None of us actually have any sway whatsoever over what that barrel of gas is going cost tomorrow. However, there is something each of us can do to improve our own personal situation. So what's the big deal? Buy yourself a scooter! Huh? Yep, it's got to be the cheapest form of motorized transportation available and it runs for pennies compared to your SUV. Listen up. We aren't talking about dressing up in your old ragtag clothes. We aren't asking you to pour your middle-age body into a pair of leathers three sizes to small and sprouting a helmet that would make any Viking proud. Our friends across the pond probably can't quite figure out what we are screaming about. Visit many of our European friends and you'll find trim and colorful scooters in all shapes and sizes zipping all over the place. This may be an alternative form of transportation considering the current energy crunch. Do the math. What if you could adjust your behavior slightly to include driving a scooter to work and saving the SUV for the family and weekends? If you are "feeling the pain" at the gas pumps, this is a viable alternative. But first ask yourself if you are mad enough to take action. Are you ready to do something about it? If you are then it's time to do your homework.
