Sadly, the Postal Rate Commission (PRC) has stood behind the USPS exigent rate increase of 4.39 issued in 2008/2009.
Ignoring the reality of decrease volume from mailers, the PRC will allow the exigent surcharge until March/April 2016.
A January 2016 market dominance increase is highly unlikely, but an April increase is possible.
The increase has brought in $1.91 billion, but the inefficient postal monopoly still loses money.
