The USPS, or United States Post Office, has increased the cost of a stamp again in the U.S., and it went into effect this week.
This is the First Class Mail Forever Stamp.
The pricing went from $0.58 to $0.60 for a standard sized letter that weighs up to one ounce
A letter sent this way takes about 5 days to arrive.
Forevery Stamps do not expire, so even if you have old ones that you paid less money for, you will still be able to use them.
