Comparing Gas Powered And Electric Scooters

Given the times we live in today, where purchase rate of consumer goods are continuing to rise and the price of oil and gas not planning to back down anytime soon, we definitely need an alternative means of transportation that is both efficient and environmentally friendly.

The invention and introduction of electric scooters has been a godsend to many individuals, who used to complain of always being late because of heavy traffic or of the unabating price of gas. Electric scooters are fairly new so the demand is not up yet, but, over time, when the market catches on, it won’t be a surprise if we make it our transportation of choice.

What is the difference between a gas powered and electricity powered scooter? Well, aside from the obvious, gas powered scooters are said to run faster, though this could arguable as some models of electric scooters are able to perform in speeds that rival regular scooters›.

But, perhaps, the best thing about the coming of electric scooters is that its use does not contribute to the slow thinning of the ozone layer. Gas scooters burn fuel to run, leaving some sort of chemical dust everytime they are revved. With an electric scooter, however, there’s no smoke.

Those who criticize electric scooters say that while it does eliminate worry over gas prices, the electricity bill will then become a problem. Electric scooters need to charged before they can run. So if you’re a heavy user, you might find yourself recharging a couple of time or more everyday.

However which way we see it, gas powered scooters and electric scooters each have their own pros and cons. If a bigger electricity bill is something you can live with, then getting an electric scooter is a good and practical decision. But if being environmentally friendly is not a very huge issue for you and you don’t have enough funds to finance the rather expensive electric scooter, gas powered scooters will serve you well.
