  • Daylight Savings Time

    Posted on June 30th, 2010 Pam No comments

    Did you know Benjamin Franklin (at age 78) first introduced Daylight Savings Time.

    He found that so much of the daylight was wasted by working in to the night. To save candles he wanted to shift the working hours.

    According to a study in the 1970s, this would save 10,000 barrels of oil per day or 3,650,000 barrels per year.

    Europe began Daylight Savings Time during World War I, United States in World War II.
