When did UPS and FedEx get so ridiculously expensive?

3 prints (20″ x 27″) via UPS ground from NYC to Denver today: $171.06 for packing and one week for delivery.  Earlier, I sent a small, 2lb package via FedEx to Omaha for overnight delivery: $65.

I’m wondering if this horrendous price increase is in response to the deals Amazon is cutting with the shippers? Based on all the free shipping deliveries I get from Amazon (and Walmart), UPS and FedEx are clearly not making much money from their biggest retail customers. Hence, gouge small customers like me! Bummed!!  May have to go back to USPS but even they have gotten super expensive (probably because Amazon is using them so much also).
