As others have stated, probably no improvement in mileage at all. I'm pretty sure there are LOTS of other things that'll influence gas mileage more than roof racks. Even the crossbars are engineered to be super aerodynamic for noise and fuel economy.
I guess if you just wanted to remove them, you should explore the base model factory roof as they come with nothing from the factory. There may be plugs and moulding to go in the channels OEM..
