ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany businessman bought a scooter to ride to work, and now he's selling them.

Ray Sabino operates Atlas Aquariums on Palmyra Road in Albany. He wanted to save money and bought a scooter to ride to work. One tank holds a gallon of gas and he says he gets about 100 miles per gallon.

The scooters have also helped him make money. People wanted to buy his, so he decided to expand his aquarium business and sell the economical wheels.

Sabino said, "I needed a scooter myself because of gas prices getting so high, so I bought one for myself and as soon as I did, everybody started asking me about them so I started getting them to sell and I just got into it."

The Scooters Sabino sell range from $1,100 to $3,000.
