Price of mailing a letter could increase to 49 cents starting next year
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – If the US Postal Service has its way, mailing a letter will go up by 3 cents at the start of the new year – increasing the price to 49 cents.
The cost of sending a postcard will also go up – by 1 cent.
The rate hikes are expected to raise $2 billion for the cash-strapped Postal Service.
The Postal Service must first receive approval from its regulatory panel before proceeding with the change.
