States could start and end daylight saving whenever wanted, thereby causing widespread confusion especially for train and bus schedules, and the broadcast industry. In America, summer time saved the equivalent in energy of 10,000 barrels of oil each day during the 1973 oil embargo. That loss of one hour's sleep can have serious consequences.
