Spring Your Clocks Forward this Weekend for Daylight Saving Time

"The Eastern Time Zone is by far the biggest in the US because areas want to be on the same time as our financial and political capitals", Prerau said. "And it was awkward for people living near the state borders".

Our research has also revealed that the shift to daylight saving time influences our ability to perceive the moral features of a given situation. They also say it causes us to consume more energy.
