Price Of Stamps Going Up Soon

The price of stamps is going up.

On May 12, stamp prices will rise from 41 cents to 42 cents, but the post office is already selling the newly priced stamps.

Many people are stocking up on the 41-cent forever stamp to save money because it can be used anytime after the postage increase.

This is the second stamp increase in a year's time. The postal service says it has been hit hard by rising gas prices.

    Everything is going up except for our paychecks! Pretty soon we won't have a paycheck to pay for anything. I guess we can all just get on welfare like the rest of the people in this country. I believe I have paid enough taxes these past 30 yrs. the government can support me too!

    As gas goes up..Stamps, food and clothing all are going up. I feel we have Bush to thank for this. as long as he is in office ..we will never see anything go down in price.

    This is why I have switched to online bill pay for all my bills - it is ridiculous to pay this for postage when you can pay free via your bank/bill pay! Plus, add in the money in gas I would spend to drive to the post office and BUY the stamps; do the math on that too!
