$2.5 billion lost over decades in USPS program to benefit rural Alaskans


June 27, 2014 5:40 PM EDT The U.S. Postal Service has lost about $2.5 billion since the early 1980s delivering goods to Alaska’s remote villages. The program, called the Alaska Bypass, was created in part to help curb the otherwise high price of shipping groceries to Alaska Natives. Critics say the savings are not passed on to customers and are pressing for a lower postal subsidy. (Whitney Shefte / The Washington Post)
