USPS Seeks to Cut Day of Mail DeliveryMarch 2009
Eliminating one day of delivery could reportedly help the Postal Service save as much as $3.5 billion annually. USPS studies have shown that Tuesday, and not Saturday, is the lightest volume day.
As expected, the governors of the USPS have approved new prices for mailing services, including a 2-cent increase in the price of a First-Class Mail stamp to 44 cents. Prices for mailing services are reviewed annually and adjusted each May. The new prices will go into effect May 11.
