Why This Weekend Is Going To Cost $434 Million

In case you didn't realize This Sunday is the worst day of the year because it's the day we set our clocks ahead, lose an hour of sleep, and make ourselves tired and miserable for a week.
 
Turns out the Daylight Savings change also costs us MONEY. 

According to a new study, losing just that one hour is going to cost the U.S. $434 MILLION!
 
That's based on an estimate of lost productivity, and the costs incurred from the increase in heart attacks and the increase in injuries in mining and construction jobs.
 
Morgantown, West Virginia . . . which is a big mining town . . . has the highest cost of the lost hour per capita.  Changing the time will cost every person in Morgantown $3.38.
 
The cities with ZERO economic impact are all in Hawaii and Arizona . . . because they don't participate in Daylight Saving Time.  Am I the only one that didn't know that?!?
