Wait, does it really cost more to MAKE during the day time? I mean, I get that there is a much higher demand for it during the day, but what would make it more costly to make?
*curious*

You should :)

Electricity does cost more to make during the day, so they pass on the cost
to you.
People who still pay the same price all day have it "good" for now, but it's
artificial and not actually good for the environment.

If you want to make this cool and geeky, you can :)
