According to Upwork, savings in commute time implies 890 million fewer miles traveled each day. Vehicle Cost (average operating cost for fuel, maintenance, and repairs of 20.54 cents per mile = $183M per day in direct commuting costs) + Life/Property/Environmental Externality (estimate cost per mile of 18.38 cents per mile=$164 million per day) + Time Savings (less time spent driving at $12.50 per hour= $411 million every day).
Upwork surveyed 1,000 people currently working from home to see how much time they are saving without a commute. Of this group, 31.4% are working from home due to COVID and 15% were working from home prior to COVID. https://www.upwork.com/press/economics/where-remote-work-saves-commuters-most/
