Thank the Heavens for Email: USPS Files for Rate Increases

While the government tells us there is no price inflation and the real threat is deflation, the  United States Postal Service  has announced they are seeking increased prices for the second ounce of domestic letters and postcards would increase by 1¢ and 1-ounce international letters by 5¢.

If endorsed by the commission, the new rates would go into effect April 26.

Prices for the second ounce would go to 22¢, from 21¢; postcards would increase to 35¢, from 34¢; and international letters would cost $1.20 instead of the current $1.15.

The first-class stamp would remain at 49¢ under the filing with the Postal Regulatory Commission.
