U.S. Postal Service to Increase Price of First Class Mail Forever Stamp
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.
Priority 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.
According to USA Today, the Postal Regulatory Commission must approve the changes before they could go into effect.
The new price plan comes at a time when USPS is struggling with sales, as mail has been replaced with electronic communication.
