(UNDATED) - Gas prices are at an all-time high and people are looking for solutions.

One way to cut back on gas is to start biking to work. Bike shops around Central Indiana are seeing a boom in business.

Indy Cycle Specialist has a sign that says, "Cure petroleum addiction here."

Manager Scott Irons says they've seen a big jump in the number of people buying the so-called commuter bikes.

Irons says those bikes are designed for getting to and from work. Irons says a bike is also good for the environment - it cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions.

Gas prices in Bloomington have already hit $3.75 a gallon, and look for prices in Bedford to get close if they aren't there already.
