Air Tires On Your Feet Provide a Healthy Way to Skate Past the Gas Pumps

Gas prices now force consumers and commuters to consider alternatives to fuel burning vehicles, especially for short commute trips. TrailSkate offers a new form of personal transportation that is both fun and healthy.

Richland, WA (PRWEB) February 9, 2022 -- Gas prices now force consumers and commuters to consider alternatives to fuel burning vehicles, especially for short commute trips. TrailSkate offers a new form of personal transportation that is both fun and healthy.

One small step to reduce global warming, every time you TrailSkate instead of driving, you eliminate CO2 emissions, reduce your dependency on foreign oil, and save money at the gas pumps.

Manufactured by Gateskate, Inc. in Richland, Washington; TrailSkate was awarded “New Sports Product of the Year ’02” by the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association. www.gateskate.com

Used by Olympic athletes and Nordic skiers for training; hundreds of other recreational athletes TrailSkate for the sheer joy of off-road skating.

Equipped with 8 X 2 inch air tires, hand operated hydraulic brakes, and a boot that fits over the user’s own shoes, TrailSkate provides skaters of all ages and ability a viable, fun, and healthy form of personal transportation, suitable for any bike path or trail.

TrailSkate inventor and founder of Gateskate, Inc., Patrick Gates is looking for a few good skaters. In a new Gateskate initiative to promote skating as a viable form of personal transportation, the company is offering a “Commuter Special” to customers who assist Gateskate in spreading the word.

The average Park-and-Ride commuter travels 2 miles to transit access.
40 percent of all travel trips are 2 miles or less.
53 percent of all people nationwide live less than two miles from the nearest public transportation route.
74.1 percent of all commute trips were made by Single Occupant Vehicles (SOV’s).

TrailSkate commutes replace short distance motor-vehicle trips, which are the least fuel-efficient and generate the most pollution per mile traveled.

Moreover, three activities can be accomplished at once: travel, exercise and FUN.

Corporations interested in co-promotion opportunities and Commute Trip Reduction programs concerning Single Occupant Vehicles are encouraged to contact Gateskate about Clean Air Act initiatives and Federal tax incentives.

Hybridcars.com Gives Home to Hybrid Car Revolution - Online Tools Help Consumers Navigate New Automotive Landscape

Hybridcars.com, the leading independent source for information on hybrid cars, launched a new version of its website today. The site introduced a full set of online tools to help consumers learn about new hybrid car models, fuel efficiency, oil dependency, and alternative auto technologies. Sales of hybrid cars in the United States are predicted to reach at least 200,000 in 2005, more than doubling last year's 88,000 sold.

(PRWEB) January 20, 2022 -- Hybridcars.com, the leading independent source for information on hybrid cars, launched a new version of its website today. The site introduced a full set of online tools to help consumers learn about new hybrid car models, fuel efficiency, oil dependency, and alternative auto technologies. Sales of hybrid cars in the United States are predicted to reach at least 200,000 in 2005, more than doubling last year's 88,000 sold.

The new site allows consumers to hear directly from hybrid drivers, auto industry analysts, and leaders in the movement toward more fuel-efficient vehicles. “Hybrids have been on the road for years, yet common myths about them persist. We’re trying to raise public awareness and dialogue to a new level” said Bradley Berman, Editor of Hybridcars.com.

The redesigned site will feature expanded content, expert blog columns, an environmental calculator, daily hybrid news tracking, a monthly email newsletter, surveys, eBooks, and discussion forums. “We are providing information about everything from car specs and hybrid car tax incentives to strategies for maximizing miles-per-gallon,” Berman added.

Hybridcars.com also tackles tough social issues, such as foreign oil dependency, terrorism, global warming, and the reluctance of American automakers to raise fuel efficiency standards. In his Hybridcars.com blog, “Hybrid Daze,” cultural observer David J. Miller explained why he bought his Ford Escape Hybrid, "I view each trip to the pump as a partial beheading for myself, my country and the Americans who make a career out of defending the United States." Nearly two-thirds of the world’s known oil reserves are under just six Persian Gulf nations: Saudi Arabia, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Iran and Qatar. Other Hybridcars.com bloggers include economist Walter McManus, hybrid mechanic Craig Van Batenburg, technologist Kip Munro, Prius-driving Soccer Mom Maria McClean, and Aeman (Alternative Energy Man).

The site’s Gas Mileage Impact Calculator is an interactive tool that allows users to compare hybrid and conventional models in terms of annual gas consumption, fuel costs, and the emission of global warming gases and other pollutants. The difference in carbon dioxide emissions between a hybrid, such as the Toyota Prius, and a similar combustion engine model, such as the Toyota Camry, can be as much as 6,000 pounds. That is more than a 50% decrease in emissions. Moreover, the Prius provides over $500 annually in fuel savings. The Gas Mileage Impact Calculator was sponsored by
Honda. Data for the calculator was provided by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.

“The release of the new site, including interactive tools, new layout and new contributors, is just the beginning. We are dedicated to providing accessible, original, accurate, and independent information to those interested in learning about the changes that hybrid automobiles herald. It’s not just about cars. The environment, the economy, and our national security hang in the balance,” noted Berman.
