Scooting around high gas prices

Joan Kohler has found a way to scoot around high gas prices -- with a motor scooter.

The 51-year-old South Dakota restaurant owner bought a candy-apple red Honda scooter last week.

Kohler says her family was nervous about her new mode of transportation but she's promised to be careful.

Kohler says she loves the 100 miles per gallon she gets on the little Honda.

And she's not alone.

Scooter dealers across the country say interest and sales are way up, as gas prices continue to rise.
