Price Of Stamps Going Up

Associated Press - December 25, 2013 8:15 am

Lecompton residents concerned for post office

It’s about to cost close to 50 cents to mail a letter.

Regulators have approved a temporary price hike of 3 cents for a first-class stamp, bringing the cost of mailing a letter to 49 cents, beginning Jan. 26.

The Postal Service hopes the higher rate will help it recoup about $2.8 billion in losses.

The price hike is to last no more than two years.

When a person can ship items cheaper by fed x and ups the post office has problems. Plus the post office does not take care with packages and damage occurs on 2 in 5 boxes shipped. Then to file a insurance claim is so difficult people are looking for more user friendly service.
