As you may or may not know, gas taxes in Southern California gas prices are the second-highest in the country. With a $.42 tax on every gallon, plus a 2.25% state tax on top of that, you are looking to pay about $4 if not more per gallon. Think about how much money you put into your car or truck each year. Fueling up a car alone in California adds about $1700 to the family’s living expenses. What if you could significantly save on gas in California by riding a motorcycle? Well, you can!
Buy a Motorcycle, Save on Gas!
The average motorcycle holds between 6 & 7 gallons of gas. On average riding a motorcycle, you can get between 30 & 60 miles per gallon. Of course that all will depend on your driving habits. In most cases, that is significantly greater than the gas mileage of a car or truck. Now, of course, if you have small children, or are going on a family drive, a motorcycle would not be sufficient. But, when you are heading to work, or going on a solo mission, you can save on gas in California by owning a motorcycle.
