Stamp price increases to 49

The United States Postal Service price change took effect January 26th, 2014. The price included an increase for a stamp from 46 cents to 49 cents. It also included a one-cent increase for postcards and additional ounces on letters. The intended revenue of the increase is to generate around $2 billion for the Postal Service. The USPS receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
The stamps available for purchase are labeled "Forever", which means no matter what the postal rate is, the stamp is still good.
