Forever Stamps Will Cost More Starting Sunday
1.22.2017 - USA Today reports: "The last increase came in January 2014 when it went from 47 cents to 49 cents. Then last April, the Postal Regulatory Commission ordered the USPS to drop its prices for the first time in 97 years. Postmaster General Megan Brennan protested, saying, "given our precarious financial condition and ongoing business needs, the price reduction required by the PRC exacerbates our losses." So now the price is going back up again on January 22nd. Postcards, letters mailed to other countries and heavier letters aren't affected." - Comments (Count)
