Price Increase To Mail A Letter In January

It’s no secret that the U.S. Postal Service has been having some financial issues, but now get ready to fork over another 3 cents to mail a letter.

The Times Union has a story about a price increase from 46 cents to 49 cents. This is supposed to be a temporary hike and expected to last for about two years. The Postal Regulatory Commission voted on the temporary increase, and rejected the request to make it permanent. This will make the cost of everything that’s mailed to increase, including post cards, magazines and bulk mail.

The U.S.P.S. has had a decrease in business because more and more people have been doing a majority of their business online. The price increase will be effective on January 26, 2014.

For those people who still use the postal service to mail a letter or pay their bills, here’s something to think about. I know that there are quite a few people who will complain about the increase. But if you want to send a letter or card across the country, it would cost you much more than 49 cents in gasoline to deliver it yourself!
