Well we're actually in regular time now, not daylight savings, so if it was done way with it wouldn't change a thing right now.

I love it! Summer it won't get dark until 9:00 with it. Without it, the sun will be up at 5:00 in the morning, and dark at 7:30-8:00 And like stated, now is normal...

It was started in order to save the cost for energy because there would be more daylight during the normal daytime when most people are awake.

It does accomplish that ... as has been said, right now is the normal time.

It saves America 1% daily on it's energy bill during this time of year. Who exactly figures that out I don't really know. I sure hope it isn't the same people who figure up the national debt!! Because if so... We're F*CKED!!
