I'm in the western part of the Central Time Zone, so the sun rises and sets later than other parts of the country. In the winter, the earliest it sets is 5:30, and it's pitch black by 6:00. In the summer, the latest the sun sets is at 9:15 and it's pitch black by 9:45. Right now, the sun just set and it's getting darker as I type.

Southern Oregon, in summer the sun starts to set around 9:00 and it's dark by 10:00 or so at one extreme. On the other it starts setting around 4:30 and is dark by 5:30. The sun started setting around 7 today. It's 7:30 right now and still fairly light out. It'll be dark in about 20 minutes-ish probably.

In Youngstown, on the longest day in summer, the sun rises around 5:45 and sets at around 9:00. The last bit of light in the western sky is gone by about 10:00.

Here is a really great site that shows sunrise, sunset, dawn, and dusk times for countries around the world in graph form: Sunrise, sunset, dawn and dusk times around the World - Gaisma

Check out some places that are very far north (like Fairbanks, Alaska) for some interesting graphs.
