This is the largest increase in U.S. history since 1991!
What? Do you remember when stamps were like 15 cents?? I do! Now they are going up to 55 cents starting in January.
The United States Postal Service says it will increase the price of Forever Stamps from 50 cents to 55 cents on January 27, 2019.
This is the largest increase in U.S. history since 1991, when the cost rose from 25 cents to 29 cents.
The last increase came in January of 2018, when the cost rose from 49 cents to 50 cents… a penny! This is 5 pennies!
Its interesting to look back and see what stamps USED to cost! They started out at just 2 cents.
