Gas prices affecting college commuters- Brian Bethel, Abilene Reporter-News

The high cost of gas is prompting area junior colleges to examine summer and fall programs with commuting students in mind. With prices Thursday near $4 a gallon, students who drive to junior colleges in places such as Ranger, Cisco, Big Spring and Abilene will pay a higher cost to commute to class.... At both its Cisco and Abilene campuses, CJC plans to offer more online courses and will offer a new block schedule, a "commuter special" for students who can take a full load by coming only on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Evans said.
