WASHINGTON (AP) - The cost of mailing a first-class letter will go up by a penny in January.
The Postal Regulatory Commission approved the proposed rate increase yesterday, raising the price of a first-class domestic stamp to 46 cents.
The Postal Service is also introducing a global "forever" stamp that will allow customers to mail letters anywhere in the world for one set price of $1.10.
The prices go into effect Jan. 27.
