^ They didn't ask me. :D


You may have been a little too young .... ;)

In 1973 and 1974, during the oil embargo crisis, the United States briefly experimented with year-round daylight saving time as a way to save energy. Congress passed the Emergency Daylight Saving Time Energy Conservation Act of 1973, Pub. L. No. 93-182, 87 Stat. 707. The experiment was short-lived, however. The next year, Congress passed legislation, returning the nation to standard time during the winter months.
