Postage Stamp Increase Requested to 49 Cents in 2014 (Why Not 50 Cents?)
The United States Postal Service announced Wednesday that it has proposed increasing the price of first-class mail to 49 cents from 46 cents, beginning in January, to help raise revenues for the cash strapped service.  The Postal Service said the new prices would take effect on Jan. 26, 2014. The increase must be approved by the independent Postal Regulatory Commission.
