Dark Energy Question

I was talking about dark energy with another amateur astronomer, and I had what seems to be a relatively simple question. If the universe is not only expanding, but in fact accelerating in its expansion, wouldn't we feel the effect of the acceleration? He said it doesn't work on a local level. This doesn't make sense to me. Am I missing something here?
