Vespanomics: The Road to Savings


With gas prices stubbornly high, saving money at the pump this summer is on many drivers’ minds. For some, that means yet again reconsidering the SUV in favor of a smaller vehicle or even a hybrid. Others may go even further in their quest for fuel efficiency.

And consider this: if 20% of the vehicles driven in New York City during daytime hours were replaced by scooters, drivers could see a total decrease in traffic delays saving nearly 100 working hours per person per year, resulting in more than $122 million in savings for the city in fuel and labor productivity.
