As gas prices continue to grow, electric scooters are becoming more and more popular for those commuting to and from school and work. Many Americans are feeling this financial impact and are hopping on the trend to save money on gas during their daily travels. 

With fuel prices constantly fluctuating, it can be hard to determine just how much someone with a car is spending on gas each week. However, we know that it is a crazy amount! Current gas prices are averaging around $2.69 in Missouri as of today. Let’s say that your daily commute to college is 20 miles there and 20 miles back. Adding up the current gas prices, the fuel efficiency of your car, and assuming that you attend school 5 days a week, you’re spending roughly $4.30 a day on gas. This averages to about $21.50 a week just to drive to school and back. This doesn’t include all the other driving you do throughout the day or the wear and tear that driving does to your car. 

At this rate, with the above statistics given, you’ll be spending approximately $322.50 just on school or work gas alone. You can probably imagine how much higher this number is when you add in all the extra driving you do each day! 

This is exactly why so many college students are opting for other options, such as electric scooters. In fact, a study done by Electric Scooter Insider showed that in Kansas City, people are saving about $678 on average per year when they choose to charge over gasoline. Think about what you could do with an extra $678 a year. We know college isn’t cheap especially when you have to include books, rent, food, and necessities on top of your college tuition. Avoid having to pay for car payments, insurance, and maintenance, by simply using a faster more affordable solution! 

Here at Charge By Hixon, our electric scooters average $0.01 to $0.02 per mile. Yeah, you heard that right! In fact, driving your all-electric scooter instead of your car (averaging around 20-25mpg of gas) will save you money on car maintenance and gasoline, and will allow you to pay off your scooter within 6 to 9 months of the purchase date. Imagine what you can do with all those savings in the years ahead! It’s never been so easy to own an Electric Scooter, and we make the process super accessible to everyone!
