I didn't realize until a couple of days ago that DC is more expensive at the post office than online at PBS.  I wonder why?  I thought all USPS fees are set and the same whether online or at the PO.

They're trying to convince people to use the self service options.  Ere-go, self service is cheaper.

By guess is because it isn't their supplies or people having to fill it out.
