Postal Service Proposes Small Price Increases on Postage

Thursday, 15 Jan 2015 07:13 PM

The U.S. Postal Service is proposing slight increases for mailing letters and postcards — but leaving first-class "Forever" stamps at their present 49 cents.

Under a filing with the Postal Regulatory Commission, letters to international destinations would rise from $1.15 to $1.20. Postcards would rise from 34 cents to 35 cents.

The increases being proposed would become effective on April 26.

On first-class mail, every ounce over 1 ounce would cost an additional 22 cents, up from 21 cents. And letters to all international destinations would go from $1.15 to $1.20.

The filing does not affect Postal Service shipping products and services.

The Postal Service says the price increases are the latest in a series of steps "to achieve financial stability."
