Teleworking reduces the pain at the pumps

Undressed for Success has developed a model which shows that if the 40 per cent of US workers that studies show could work from home actually did, the US could cut Gulf Oil imports by 74 per cent.

 

“Yet lots of companies, and even a number of government agencies, are moving to a 4-day workweek to reduce the pain at the pumps. However, our research shows that if fully half of the U.S. working population worked a 4-day workweek, we’d only be able to reduce Persian Gulf imports by 57%,” the website says.

 

Their calculator is only relevant for people living in the US, but it is fascinating.
