While the rest of the world has enjoyed or been cursed with, depending on how you see it, a thriving scooter culture the United States has never really had a mainstream scene that has been a lasting element. Though larger cities and warmer locales have had steady scooter activity for decades more recently scooters have been catching on in a broader range. The developments in the scooter scene recently noted in a NY Times article mentioned here on PSFK should not be considered a situation unique to New York. One factor affecting the entire nation is almost certainly the rising cost of fuel.
