MAIL: U.S. Postal Service seeks price increase for stamps
The U.S. Postal Service is seeking to increase the price of its first-class mail forever stamp in the biggest price hike since 1991. The USPS board of governors requested a 5-cent increase to the forever stamp, up to 55 cents. Priority Mail flat rate prices could also increase by an average of 5.9 percent. For example, a medium flat rate box that now goes for $13.65 would increase to $14.35. The Postal Regulatory Commission must approve the changes before they could go into effect.
