Soaring gas prices, education costs boost enrollment in online courses - Paul Brooks, Times Herald-Record

Bobby Perillo liked what he saw on the screen of the computer in front of him Friday at the Empire State College office on Route 299. "I want something flexible and economical," Perillo said. Economical these days means keeping one eye on the gas gauge and the other on the price at the pump. That is especially true for students as they struggle to handle the soaring costs of both their education and their commute to classes. The prices are boosting enrollment in online and distance courses, according to national reports.
