Postal service raises rates
WASHINGTON (10/20/11)--The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) early this week announced that postage prices for standard letters and other mailings would be increased on Jan. 22, 2012. Specifically, the USPS said the price of "forever stamps," which can be used to mail a single one-ounce letter, would increase by one cent to total 45 cents. However, the price for additional ounces will hold steady at 20 cents, the USPS said. Mailing a letter to nearby neighbors Canada or Mexico will cost 85 cents, and postage for letters sent to other international addresses will increase by seven cents, to total $1.05. Postcard postage will increase by three cents to total 32 cents, the USPS added. The USPS said prices for standard mail, periodicals, package services, and other services will also be changed. Express mail and priority mail prices will not be changed, the USPS said. For more on the price changes, use the resource link.
