MAIL: U.S. Postal Ser­vice seeks price in­crease for stamps

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - Business -

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.
