You may have to shell out more money for some postal services next year.
The U.S. Postal Service is proposing an increase in prices that would start Jan. 26.
Some services, including basic letters and postcards, would not be impacted. But the price of priority mail express would go up by 3.5%.
Priority mail will increase by 4.1%.
The change was approved by the Postal Service Governors, who say the new rates will keep the service competitive.
But the Postal Regulatory Commission still needs to give it’s, so to say, stamp of approval.
