Body

It is going to cost you more to use snail mail. Monday, the cost of a stamp goes up from 42 to 44 cents. Forever Stamps will still work, even if you bought them at the lower rate.

The postal service estimates the increase will cost the average household three dollars per year. There may be a run on two-cent stamps, but it probably won’t be enough to lick the postal service’s budget shortfalls.

So far this year, the post office is $2.3 billion in the hole.
