The financially struggling U.S. Postal Service says it plans to stop delivering mail on Saturdays.
In an announcement scheduled for later today, the service is expected to say the cut, beginning in August, would mean a cost saving of about $2 billion annually.
The service will continue to deliver packages six days a week. The move further proves one of the agency's strong points; package delivery has increased by 14 percent since 2010.
Meanwhile, the delivery of letters and other mail has declined with the increasing use of email and other Internet use.
