Usps will survive. At least we all better hope so.
A package you can send via usps across country for 3 dollars would cost you 8 with UPS, and it gets worse.
Haha, I'm happy to pay a little extra every year, it's much better than paying double.
They can even go up .25 every year and it will still be better then using UPS/FedEx.
