Postage Prices set to DECREASE


After increasing prices last May the US Postal Service is reducing prices on First Class mail beginning April 10th, 2016.

A 4.3% surcharge was put in place as a temporary measure to stem the effects of the Great Recession on the Postal Service. The Postal Regulatory Commission requires this surcharge to be reversed.  The price reduction follows the USPS’s first quarterly net profit in 5 years.
