Congress May Extend Daylight-Saving Time

By now you have turned all your clocks forward for daylight-saving time... right? Now, as part of energy conservation legislation it is considering, Congress is looking into the possibility of extending daylight-saving time. Under the new proposal, DST would begin on the last Sunday of March and end on the last Sunday of November.

By one estimate, extending DST could save as much as 10,000 barrels of oil per day by extending daylight into the evening. For more information about DST, go here.
