    US Postal Service stands by cost cuts - Dayton Business Journal

    The U.S. Postal Service defended its cost cutting plan before Congress on Monday, saying its estimate that cutting back from mail delivery six days a week to five days will save it $3.1 billion annually.

    The Postal Service disputed a report that says the cutback would save considerably less.

    The Postal Service is trying to find ways to cut costs and remain financially competitive given increased pressure from use of e-mail, as well as delivery services such as those offered by FedEx Corp. and United Parcel Service.

    It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that going from 6 to 5 days of delivery will save costs. I wonder if they will actually follow through and cut back a day of service, or will it take another couple of years to confirm the results?
