A tremendousamount of energy is required to produce transportation equipment such asautomobiles, buses trains, and subways. If telecommuting is promoted, therewill be less use of this equipment and less energy will be required forproduction, maintenance, and repair of this equipment. Fuel resources needed tooperate this equipment will be reduced. The building and repair of highways andmaintenance requires a large consumption of energy, not only in the operation ofthe highway construction and repair equipment, but also in the manufacture andtransportation of the required materials.
