When will rising gas prices affect motorcycle riders?

A new survey that shows motorcycle riders are largely immune to the recent gas hikes seen throughout the nation comes at a welcome time.

The average gas price in the United States climbed to $2.99 on May 3, representing a 30-cent rise in the last month, according to the AAA auto and travel club Web site.

Still, a survey of more than 2,500 consumers shows motorcycle riders are less apt to be concerned about the rising gas prices in comparison to other owners of recreational products. In fact, nearly 70 percent of powersport enthusiasts said they will not change their vacation plans because of high gas prices, according to the Nationwide Mutual Insurance’s Second Annual Fueling Powersports Index.
