The U.S. Postal Service has submitted its annual request for prices changes to the Postal Regulatory Commission for review and, if approved, the cost of a First Class Mail Forever stamp would stay at its current 55 cents.
Overall, mailing service product prices would go up 1.9%.
The average rate for its popular Priority Mail would increase an average of 4.1%. The average rates for Priority Express would increase 3.5%.
The Postal Service is allowed to adjust shipping service prices based on market conditions, though mailing service price increases are based on the Consumer Price Index.
