” The United States Postal Service overpaid trucking contractors $61.5 million through its Voyager Card Program, which allows drivers to expense their gas on a credit card.
According to the inspector general, the Postal Service failed to identify fuel overpayments by contractors on Highway Contract Routes (HCR), which covers more than 17,000 drivers.
The Postal Service—which lost $1.9 billion in the second quarter of 2013, and owes nearly $50 billion in liabilities—has to collect millions each year from private individuals and firms contracted to deliver mail. These individuals are overcharging the agency for their fuel.”
Welcome to State monopolies … ever the diligent steward of taxpayer funds .
