High Gas Prices Fuel Online Class Boom - Kerry Kavanaugh, ABC Action News Tampa

After working their full-time jobs, Marcos and Silvia Gazeta’s day is only half over. As soon as they finish work it’s off to school. Well, sort of. "I save money, I save time," says Silvia. That’s because the Gazeta’s are among a growing number of students, across the country, who are parking their cars and taking online classes instead. The two are enrolled in Hillsborough Community College’s distance learning courses.... The cost of taking a class online is no different than going the old fashioned way, but since the beginning of the year, the couple estimates they’ve saved $1,000 just in gas expenses.
