HATE HIGH GAS PRICES? TRY A VELOMOBLIE

The modern velomobile is the practically an all-weather vehicle: resistant to snow, rain and hail. The downside? It’s pretty much an egg-shaped bicycle. Despite its strange appearance, they’re increasing in popularity all over the world by short-distance communters because of high-tech features such as carbon fiber, full suspension, integrated lighting, and the capability of cruising speeds of up to 30 mph. With a price tag ranging from $5,000 to $7,000, firms such as Velomobile USA are hoping to integrate these as a popular alternative to gas-guzzlers in the United States.
