For many it is actually a problematic issue but everyone has to follow it. Daylight savings time 2013 in USA is ending on November 3. It is time to set your clocks back.

It is the time of the year when daylight saving time is ending in many parts of the world. In UK it has already ended, so is the case of Israel and in many other parts of Europe. And the time of ending daylight saving time is coming to an end just about a week from now in USA too.

On this coming Sunday, the daylight saving time will be coming to an end you will have to move your clock back by one hour. Many say that this decades old practice should be done away with as it has lost its relevance. But despite repeated demands from many a quarters, government is still continuing with the Daylight Saving time policy that was thought to cater to the needs of circumstances suitable for people decades ago. Now there is neither need to follow the old tradition nor even usage.

In the meantime the time to set our clocks back by one hour is set to arrive within a week’s time. The exact date and time to do it will be 2 am on 3rd November. Many people usually call it fallback time.  The Daylight Savings time that is part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 introduced in the country and implemented by President George W. Bush actually aimed to take care of increasing energy problems. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 also attempted to give tax incentives besides of course loan guarantees for companies working on different types of energy in United States.
