Gas prices are up and so are motorcycle, dirt bike, and scooter sales

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-  The price of gas has been rising steadily and along with it the sales of scooters, motorcycles and even street legal dirt bikes.    

Store owners we spoke to say they've seen many people riding and servicing alternative vehicles in an effort to save at the pump. 

The sales manager at Tri Cities Cycle Supply"  says he's seen a twenty percent increase in dual sport dirt bikes sales.   

Dirt bikes and motorcycles generally get more miles per gallon than cars, but less than scooters.
