USA Postage Rates Might Increase in May 2009

The US Postal Service is having money problems, the worst ever in their history. Stamps are allowed to go up in May 2009 by a maximum of 2 cents. If you are buying stamps in April or May, don't buy too many at the current rate or you'll find yourself back at the post office having to buy a bunch of 1 or 2 cent completer stamps.

They are also considered cutting mail delivery to 5 days a week instead of the current 6 days.

UPDATE 2/15/09 - Told ya so! Stamps are going up 2 cents in May!
