Scooter sales up

Rising gas prices have more people choosing two wheels over four. That's driving buyers to dealerships in search of scooters and small motorcycles.

Sales of name-brand scooters like Honda, Suzuki and Vespa were up almost 24 percent in the first quarter of this year. But now you might have some trouble finding a one.

Some dealers are having difficulty keeping more than a couple of scooters in stock.

Depending on the size of the scooter, you can get anywhere from 40 to about 120 miles per gallon.
