daylight not saved in 73-74

I remember, back in the winter of 73/74 that we didn’t set the clocks back.
It was quite dark as I went to school.
What difference did this make?
What were the consequencesof it?

What happened was that daylight saving time was imposed all year around. The consequences were that people got mad at the president for having such a stupid idea.

It was because of the energy crisis.

so…did it help with the energy crisis?

Yes.
