High gas prices fuel boom in online classes - NANCY KELSEY, Forbes

Then she realized she could take the same courses from her computer at home and save on fuel costs. "It's gotten out of hand, the gas prices," said Ranticelli, 50, who lives in Springfield. "It's $70 a week. That's pretty close to my groceries."
