When I lived in the eastern time zone I really like it for the amount of daylight I had left after getting off work. Lived in central time for over 20 years now and still can't get accustomed to it . It just seems like I have to do more in the dark. When the sun goes down my energy really goes down.

The key word in the question would be, necessary. No it is not necessary. It is nice to have the extra hour of daylight late in the day. The other option would be to get all the businesses to change their hours. Instead of 8 to 5 they could move to 7 to 4. But I really think that would bring more protests than daylight savings.
