Europe might turn the lights out on daylight saving time.
The European Commission is taking public comments on whether or not citizens should keep changing their clocks twice a year.

Europeans have until Aug. 16 to fill out a questionnaire and voice their preference. Regardless of the final decision, the commission made it clear that all member countries need to follow the same rules.
