"Daylight Savings" would be a noun itself, and makes little sense applied as an adjective in this context. Many people use the word savings, not knowing the correct way to say it. Edit; "Daylight Saving" time.
Daylight Saving Time results in an increase in the use of air conditioning, which counteracts the decrease in the use of lighting for which Daylight Saving Time was intended.

Daylight saving time starts in spring. I can't wait for daylight to go outside and play.
As of 2006, with the addition of Indiana, there are now 48 U.S. states that observe daylight saving time (all but Hawaii and Arizona, although the Navaho Nation, part of which is in Arizona, does do daylight saving time).
Daylight saving time was in use in 1963, but in the United States the beginning and end of daylight saving time wasn't standardized (with states having the right to opt out of DST observance) until the passage of the Uniform Time Act of 1966.
No they don't. Hawaii is one of the few US states that doesn't implement Daylight Saving Time.

Daylight Saving Time is four weeks longer since 2007 due to the passage of the Energy Policy Act in 2005. The Act extended Daylight Saving Time by four weeks from the second Sunday of March to the first Sunday of November, with the hope that it would save 10,000 barrels of oil each day through reduced use of power by businesses during daylight hours. Unfortunately, it is exceedingly difficult to determine energy savings from Daylight… Read More

It was first used during World War I as an energy saving measure.

Daylight Saving Time was introduced before electricity was in use. It's primary implementation was to save candles by shifting people's waking hours. There is no actual affect on the amount of time that passes. It is simply a practical shift in the numbers that we assign to the hours of the day. Really, it 'shifts' our experience of daylight, it doesn't 'save' it. But wouldn't it be strange if we called it Daylight Shifting Time?
Is it true that in 1956 illinois did not use central daylight time so july 1956 in chicago was be central standard time?
No, the most recent year in which Daylight Saving Time was not observed in Illinois was 1917.
Reasons For Daylight Saving Time Daylight saving time is meant to save energy specifically electric power. There is more human activity in the early evening than in the early morning. By shifting the time such that it gets dark later, people will use less electric lighting and this saves electricity. During WW2, the USA instituded double daylight saving time (2 hours ahead) during the summer months. We go off daylight saving time during the winter… Read More
There is daylight savings time because it is to preserve as much energy as possible. The theory is that when it's daylight longer we will use less electricity. There have been studies and it has been reported to save a little energy.
Sundials are one hour slower in the summer in places that use Daylight Saving Time. They aren't slower 'due to GMT'. GMT, or standard Universal Time, (UCT, I believe) remains the same all year regardless of where you are; GMT is not adjusted for Daylight Saving Time. You could, of course, turn your sundial to adjust for Daylight Saving Time, but if you are that interested in accurate time, you probably would not rely on… Read More

Yes, the only regions in the US that do not observe DST are Arizona and Hawaii.
In Brisbane, Queensland, Australia it is 2:30 am the next day when it is 11:30 am in Saint Louis, Missouri, USA. It is currently 15 hours ahead of Central US time. It is GMT+10. It has no daylight saving time in 2016, so that difference can change when other places use daylight saving time.
The purpose of daylight savings time is to allow an extra hour of daylight in the evening during the summer, thereby reducing the use of artificial lights. It was started in the United States and Canada during World War I to help conserve energy.
Hawaii is relatively close to the equator with minor changes to daylight because of season. Daylight savings would complicate international business and tourists, with no added benefit. Arizona has determined the twice a year time changes complicate business operations without energy savings or any other benefit. Energy loss may actually occur because of increased use of residential air conditioning. Overall, daylight savings are not uniformly observed internationally. Most countries do not observe daylight saving time… Read More
http://aa.usno.navy.mil/faq/docs/daylight_time.php According to the US Naval Observitory, "not all places in the U.S. observe daylight time. In particular, Hawaii and most of Arizona do not use it.

The decision to expand the portion of the year in which we would use daylight savings time was made on the principle that more daylight would be saved, that is, the original purpose of daylight savings time would be accomplished to a greater degree; human schedules would better synchronize with the hours when the sun is up.
The plan gives us a later sunset so the daylight lasts longer. Doing so saved daylight hours so that during World War I, when it was implemented, war time production could continue later in the day, thus saving energy. In 1966, Daylight Savings Time became more uniform. It allows us to use less energy in the early evening by taking advantage of the longer daylight hours.
I Hear When It first Started It was To Get More From The suns Light To Use Less Energy For $$$$ Reasons...
Daylight savings time, or DST, is a method of saving light and thus energy by advancing of clocks to better fit the sun's schedule. Instead of working at 7 am when there is no sunlight, if the 7 am is changed to 8 am, people can make use of the sunlight. At the opposite time of the year, the clocks must go back to the original time to maintain the sync with the world.
