More students study online as gas prices soar - Dan Berrett, Pocono Record

These days, Christy LaBadie can stay home, go to class and save money on gas — all at the same time. A sophomore majoring in medical administration at Northampton Community College, LaBadie is taking her first online distance learning class this summer. "The reason I did it is because of the current gas prices," LaBadie, 30, said recently. "For me to drive to Bethlehem or even Tannersville would cost me so much more," she said, referring to the Northampton and Monroe county campuses of the college.
