Post Office Leasing Mail Delivery Vehicles
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
The U.S. Postal Service is facing even more financial trouble.
Last year, it lost about $16 billion.
Now, the agency says it cannot even afford to buy the vans and trucks used to deliver mail.
Instead, officials say they want to lease the vehicles, even though it has never been done by the agency before.
The U.S.P.S. uses more than 200,000 mail-delivering cars, trucks, and vans.
