45 Cent Stamps
Price of stamps rise
Sunday postage stamps went up to 45 cents.
It’s the first price hike on the first class stamps since May 2009.
The U.S. Postal Service announced the penny increase in October.
It’s the latest in a series of measures to keep the cash strapped agency financially sound.
The post office has suffered crushing blows the past several years, as electronic mail continues to eclipse what many Americans now call “snail mail”.
