Yes, it is per gallon but amounts change by state. I am in the PNW which has very high rates

Gas taxes in the US are almost always a set amount per gallon as opposed to a percentage of the total cost (unlike other consumer purchases). So $4 a gallon gas generates the same tax revenue as $2.49 a gallon gas. Its not the taxes that put you over a barrel, its oil speculation and pure oil company profit.

Anyway, once gas hits $3.75 and above, you'll see scooter flying off the lots again.

Wow, that sounds like a great price... wish I could get it, but ..... 4k is about 1/6th what I made this year.. commission only sucks

You'll sell it.... And you will get that price I bet.

Yeah, I think 4K is more then a fair price for it. I am just going to wait until spring and see what happens.

IMO, Good choice... I know it's costing you to let it sit but my guess is that you'll spend less on payments than you'll lose in selling right now.

Good luck!
