    Tom Carper is being ridiculed by the right for his suggestion to save the Post Office. Wind energy and electric delivery trucks. While this won't likely save the post office on its own. The cost of implementing the on such a massive scale is a bit prohibitive. But it's not a bad idea. The post office uses over 120 million gallons of gas each year. So every time gas goes up one cent, it cost USPS at least $1.2 million over the course of the year.

    The right has completely written off this idea and began labeling Carper as crazy. I think there is merit here and it seems like the oil and gas lobby might have their hands in here.
