Fall Back! Daylight Saving Time Ends Sunday
November 2, 2007 at 7:05 AM (PT)
Get ready to pay your overnighter an extra hour, as DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME ends this SUNDAY morning (11/4) at 2a, so set your clocks back one hour!
The federal law that established "daylight time" in the UNITED STATES does not require any area to observe daylight savings time. But if a state chooses to observe DST, it must follow the starting and ending dates set by the law. From 1986 to 2006 this was the first SUNDAY in APRIL to the last SUNDAY in OCTOBER, but starting in 2007, it is observed from the second SUNDAY in MARCH to the first SUNDAY in NOVEMBER, adding about a month to daylight saving time.
ARIZONA (with the exception of the NAVAJO NATION) and HAWAII and the territories of PUERTO RICO, VIRGIN ISLANDS, GUAM and AMERICAN SAMOA are the only places in the U.S. that do not observe DST, but instead stay on "standard time" all year long.
