People want Daylight Saving Time (DST) to end. DST is putting clocks backwards an hour in the spring. This gives an extra hour of light in the summer. Scientists say it could harm our health and increase energy costs. People say we don't need it today because we have electric lights and people work day and night.

People who like DST say it saves energy. People do more outdoor activities, so it is good for our health. They also say it cuts accidents and crime. City workers, shop owners, and tourism companies like DST. People who want DST to end say it increases energy costs. There are more heart attacks because our body clock changes.
