The Wall Street Journal is reporting that sales of Segways have gone through the roof as many people turn to alternative, more cost effective means of transportation.
The Segway is a perfect solution for those who travel less than 10 miles to and from work. It gets about 25 miles per charge and hits about 13 miles per hour. Once at work, you can plugin for free fuel (why not have your employer pay for your fuel after all!)
Once dismissed as a fad, the Segway, along with other electric scooters, are gaining in popularity among city dwellers as an effective way to commute when the weather permits.
