USPS Raising Price of Stamps Sunday
The price of stamps is going up and we want to know what you think.
The price of stamps at your local post office will be slightly higher beginning Jan. 22.
A U.S. Postal Service (USPS) Forever stamp will increase by one cent, from 44 to 45 cents starting Sunday, according to the U.S. government-run USA.gov. The article cites that the increase is the first on Forever stamps in two and a half years.
Postmaster General Patrick Donahue said in a statement on the USPS website that the increase is “small” and is necessary “to help address our current financial crisis.”
Forever stamps, once purchased by a consumer, are always good and lock in the initial price paid.
