You can still use a 3 volt source though as long as you use a resistor to turn some of them volts into heat, but it's not necessarily the most efficient way to do things.
My understanding is that you use a resistor to control the amount of Current flowing through the LED. Are you saying that you can cause a drop in Voltage with a resistor too?
