The Pajamas Economy: Can Telecommuting Save America?

More working at home could save consumers $52 billion a year.

I would very much like for this to be true:

We've developed a telecommuting model which shows that if the 40% of U.S. workers that studies show could work from home actually did, the U.S. could reduce Gulf Oil imports by 74%, and reduce gas consumption by 11.5 billion gallons a year. That would save consumers $52 billion and reduce greenhouse gases by 101 million tons. If those 40% worked from home half the time—roughly the national average for existing teleworkers—the savings would be $40 billion and 78 million tons of CO 2.
