Postal Service Proposes Rate Increase
The U.S. Postal Service is seeking to raise the price of stamps again. A first-class stamp, if approved, would go up to 39 cents. The move would also raise the price of postage for letters and packages 5.4 percent. The price for an overnight Express Mail package would cost $14.39 instead of the present mark of $13.65. Since 2002, the price of stamps has gone up three times. It’s seems like it is starting to take the pattern of gas prices. Maybe it will fluctuate soon as gas does also.
