Changes in the price of stamps

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) -

If you still send letters in the mail, there's some good news if you need stamps.

In an unusual move, stamp prices went down two cents to $0.47.  Back in 2014, the Postal Regulatory Commission allowed the postal service to increase prices to make up for nearly $7 billion in revenue loss during the recession, but that price increase was only temporary. 

This break in stamp prices might not last.  The Postmaster General is seeking congressional action to bring back the surcharge, because the cut reportedly will cost the postal service $2 billion a year.
