Daylight Savings Time - Is It a Waist of Time & Money?

Tell me again why we do “Daylight Savings Time”. Really don’t understand... Everything I read shows it does not save any energy. Even Wikipedia tells us Several studies have suggested that DST increases motor fuel consumption.[7] The 2008 DOE report found no significant increase in motor gasoline consumption due to the 2007 U.S. extension of DST.[50]”.


So why do we still do this? I have looked at over 20 sites on the web and looked at many studies and ALL of them say the same thing. That is does not save anything and it possibly uses more energy than not switching.  Look at
About.com. Do the studying yourself, and find out the truth. STOP THE MADNESS...


I think this is what is wrong with our fine country... The government is mandating thing that make no sense at all. They do not have the intestinal fortitude to fix what is bad... They are drunk with power and think they have to do MORE than the last guy....


I say REPEAL Daylight Savings Time...
