Congress may extend daylight-saving time …

Lawmakers crafting energy legislation approved an amendment Wednesday to extend daylight-saving time by two months, having it start on the first Sunday in March and end on the last Sunday in November. It still has to be voted on by the full house.

“The more daylight we have, the less electricity we use,” said Markey, who cited Transportation Department estimates that showed the two-month extension would save the equivalent of 10,000 barrels of oil a day.

The country uses about 20 million barrels of oil a day.

    I filled up my little car- $30.00 I almost fainted. Aside from work- I don’t go because who can afford it?
