Daylight savings was bumped up three weeks earlier this year supposedly to cut down on energy costs. The theory being, more daylight equals less energy use in the home. But at the same time, gas prices have sky rocketed because with more daylight many more folks stay on the road longer.

So my question is, does it matter? You might save energy and costs in the home but they're still sticking you at the pumps!
