It's no secret that gas prices are high, and it only looks like they're going to keep rising. But we still have to get to work — so if you can get over being the geek on the little green machine, the Rover Electric Scooter ($5,920) might be what you need. With a fully-electric, rechargeable motor, it has a range of 32 miles and a top speed of 33 mph. All-weather tires, a smartphone holder, lightweight aluminum construction, and LED lights make it a pretty versatile vehicle. Also available in black, white, and purple.
There's nothing like the convenience and ease of biking to work — you save on gas, avoid traffic, and it helps you stay in shape. But, there's nothing worse than the wet ass that comes from biking on a rainy day (and the jokes you get when you show up at the office). Ass Savers Emergency Mudguards ($11) solve that problem, and stop the ruthless jokes. These simple polyurethane tabs fasten beneath your seat, catching all the muddy, wet spray from your rear tire. They come in a range of bright colors, or black and white, and tuck underneath your seat when you don't need them.
