Saturday mail delivery may soon end.
According to an ABC News report, the United States Postal Service is expected to announce Feb. 6 that it will end Saturday mail delivery in August 2013, but will continue to make Saturday package deliveries. The plan would save the agency about $2 billion annually, the report says.
Also, delivery to post office boxes would continue on Saturdays and post offices now open on Saturdays would remain open on Saturdays.

Over the past several years, the Postal Service has advocated shifting to a five-day delivery schedule for mail and packages. Though an independent agency, the service still is subject to congressional control.
