AUGUSTA, Ga.---Get ready to pay more to mail a letter. The U.S. Postal Service has announced plans to raise the price of a first class stamp to 42 cents, starting May 12th. The current 41 cent rate has been in effect for about a year.

However, if you have the "Forever" stamps--the ones with the Liberty Bell on them--you can keep on using them.

Stamps will cost 41 cents up until May 12th. Then they will cost 42 cents.

You might want to get a supply of "Forever" stamps to use after the rate hike. The Postal Service says it's printing up an extra 5,000,000,000 of them. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
