Starting August 2013, the United States Postal Service will end Saturday delivery. First class mail will only be delivered five days a week. The decision is a result of huge losses, mounting costs and a decline in customers due to the increasing use of email. Cutting Saturday delivery is expected to save $2 billion each year. The USPS reported it lost nearly $16 billion last year.
