The price of a United States Postal Service (USPS) first class postage stamp has increased from 41 to 42 cents, effective today.

Other USPS mailing service costs have also increased as of today, including rates for postcards, certified mail, international letters, and package services. See a Complete List of USPS Prices for Domestic and International Services. The Associated Press reports that consumers may want to stock up on the USPS "Forever Stamp," because although the price of that stamp is now also 42 cents, the USPS is expected to adjust its prices again next May.
