Gas prices bring out the bikers

September 9, 2005

Valdosta - High gas prices are causing many people to park their vehicles and hop on their bikes.

The bike racks at Valdosta State University seem to be more full than the parking lots. Some students say they're saving about $30.00 a week by pedaling to class instead of driving.

"Last year gas wasn't that high so I didn't have to use my bike, but this year its extremely high and I have to drive a lot to school and work, so this is just helping me conserve," said Pablo Rivera.

The average cost for a gallon of regular unleaded gas in Valdosta is about $3.00.
