30% Less Likely to Use Postal Service Because of Stamp Price Hike – Rasmussen Reports™

The price of a first-class postage stamp will rise from 46 cents to 49 cents on Sunday to help the U.S. Postal Service fight its continuing budget losses, but a sizable number of Americans say the price hike is likely to reduce their use of the post office. Forty-three percent (43%) of American Adults believe the cost of postal stamps is too high, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Just as many (44%) think the price of stamps is about right, while seven percent (7%) say it is too low.

If they sampled a thousand people, I wonder how many were under the age of, oh, fifty-five?  Because who, from GenX on down, still sends snail-mail?

I haven’t sent an actual letter in years.  I did send out a couple of Christmas cards, but only to folks my own age who expect that sort of thing.  Everybody younger got their cards via email.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
