    Why did daylight savings time (DST) start and why does it still continue?

    You provided links to answer the first part of the question. So why does it still continue?

    Kent, not too bad of a ride home not nearly as wet as I thought it would be. Not sure why but it seemed like I was sliding through corners allot.

    Stuart, good question, maybe you can do some research on it and get back to us?

In Indiana, where part of the state observes DST and part does not, farmers have opposed a move to DST. Farmers, who must wake with the sun no matter what time their clock says, are greatly inconvenienced by having to change their schedule in order to sell their crops to people who observe daylight saving time.

    Congress appears to have felt we were not having enough of a difficult time so in 2007 they passed a law starting Daylight Savings time 3 weeks earlier and ending it one week later. This cost US companies billions to reset automated equipment, put us further out of sync with Asia and Africa time-wise, inconvenienced most of the country, all in the name of unproven studies that claim we save energy.

    STANDARDTIME.COM SAYS: If we are saving energy let's go year round with Daylight Saving Time. If we are not saving energy let's drop Daylight Saving Time!
