Set your clock back one hour, following the adage of "spring forward, fall back." The extra hour gives you a chance to catch up on the sleep you lost in March when the clocks moved forward and daylight saving time began.

Now it's optional for states, but only Arizona and Hawaii do not observe it. Because of Hawaii's tropical latitude, sunrise and sunset do not vary much. Indiana used to ignore daylight saving time but now observes it.
Some studies have shown that extending daylight saving time results in a reduction in energy consumption. Other studies suggest the opposite.
