Energy Savings Time - Not!

Apparently, the move to daylight savings time we made three weeks earlier was pretty much a draw in terms of energy savings, according to this Reuters report.
The move to turn the clocks forward by an hour on March 11 rather than the usual early April date was mandated by the U.S. government as an energy-saving effort.

But other than forcing millions of drowsy American workers and school children into the dark, wintry weather three weeks early, the move appears to have had little impact on power usage.

Actually I had my doubts about this measure when Congress was passing it two years year.
