The Power Of A Penny Brings Hope to the USPS

US Postal Service Increases Stamp Price by One Cent January 22, 2012

USPS Increases Stamp Price by One CentThe cost of a first-class stamp is increasing by one cent to 45 cents starting tomorrow! This is the United States Postal Service's (USPS) first increase since May 2009.

The cost of sending magazines, standard mail and some package services will also increase, but prices for Express Mail and Priority Mail will remain the same. Postcard stamps will increase three cents to .32 cents. The biggest increase is for international mail which will increase by five cents to .85 cents for mail to Mexico and Canada and by seven cents to $1.05 to other countries.

The hikes are expected to generate an additional $888 million in revenue according to postal officials, and will hopefully help address the USPS financial crisis.

If you have purchased "Forever" stamps in the past, those are still good...until you run out!
