September 19, 2008 by · Comments Off on Moped sales on the rise 

Young and old alike are flocking to fuel-efficient mopeds and more stylish scooters to get around Waynesboro and other towns and cities across the country.

With high gas prices, an increasing number of the fuel-efficient mopeds that can get 100 miles per gallon or more can be found on city streets. Greg Hensley, manager of Wayne Cycle Shop in Waynesboro, said the mopeds are moving out quicker than he can keep them in stock.

His sales are up by about 60 percent over last year, with nationwide moped sales up nearly 50 percent. Prices start at just under $2,000, with payments as low as $50 per month.
