It is a measely two cents.

It is a measely two cents. You would have to mail fifty letters a week for it to cost you an extra dollar, and how many people can find something to waste a dollar on? I used to mail in all of my monthly bill payments. Now, with the exception of one payment per month, I pay them all online. I'm sure many people do the same, and that translates into a severe decrease in revenues for the USPS. Everytime the USPS mentions taking an extra day off per week to save money, closing up earlier in the day, or closing a non-performing satellite office, then it creates a major outcry from those who say they will be inconvenienced. Convenience costs money. When you can send a letter anywhere in the country for less than it costs you to drive it to the post office, then it is ridiculous to complain about an increase of two cents.
