Stamp Prices to Increase in May

In what has become something of an annual ritual, stamp prices will be increasing once again on May 11th. First class letters will be increasing from $0.42 to $0.44 and prices for other services will likewise be adjust upwards. The good news is that the availability of forever stamps means that you won’t have to scramble to find $0.02 stamps after the increase.

In addition to this price increase, the US Postal Service has recently considered dropping Saturday delivery. What do you think about this? Honestly, I really wouldn’t miss an extra day of service. In fact, it might make my weekends just a bit more relaxing.

Oh, and in case you’re curious, I put together a historical graph of stamp prices around this time last year. It’s not inflation adjusted, but it still gives you a sense for how much things have changed over the years.
