The American Automobile Association is forecasting gasoline prices to continue rising over the next few weeks due to the continuing crisis in Egypt. Those higher gas prices are forcing some people to look at other forms of transportation.
When gas prices go up, the people who see gas-sipping mopeds and scooters say they see many more people come into their showrooms. The mopeds Wilson sells can manage between 50 to 100 miles per gallon.
USC graduate student Robert Sinners says he was tired of spending so much money filling up his Jeep.
"I'd say after about a month or two of usage, I paying maybe a gallon of gas every two or three weeks," says Sinners.
Gas prices are 46 cents higher than they were this time last year, according to AAA.
