So when do you think its going to happen? I believe that it will be later rather than sooner because such high prices will stem demand. Then again, prices spike during the summer and premium unleaded is $4.30.

I highly doubt $6/gallon diesel this year. Remember that gas and diesel are close in price during the summer and gas used to be higher. The demand for heating oil in winter spikes the price and the new USLD raised the price. Plus, if you do some quick estimates, a TDI still saves money until diesel is over $6, assuming $4/gallon gas and average gas mileage. By that time, gas will be higher too.

I like motorcycles and scooters but I won't use one as a commuter. They are too dangerous. It only takes 1 careless driver to swipe you and you are dead. Talk with long time riders and they all know someone who lost a leg or their life. Not worth saving any amount of money, IMO. If you want to have fun, go for it, but don't do it to save money. It's like drafting a tractor trailer - you save money on fuel but lose money on rock chips, cracked windshields, and the increased risk.
