Each gallon of gas used by a car contributes almost 20 pounds of CO2 to the atmosphere.  A singel car driving 1000 miles a month adds up to 120 tons of Co2 annually. 
If each commuter car carries one more passenger, an estimated 6,000,000 gallons of gasoline will be saved and 12 million pounds of CO2 will be kept out of the air.
