Postal rates rise today

From NBC12 News

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Stamp prices are going up this week.  

Starting today, the price of the first-class stamp rises to $0.44. That will net the U.S. Postal Service an extra 2 cents per letter.

The U.S. Postal Service probably understands how tough this economy is. It lost almost $3 billion dollars last year, and it could lose more this year.
