The cost of mailing a letter goes up a penny to 42 cents on Monday, the latest in what are expected to be annual price adjustments by the Postal Service.

A new law regulating the post office makes it easier to raise rates as long as the agency doesn't exceed the rate of inflation. Rates are to be adjusted each May.

Well with online bill paying and so forth, the postal service will be obsolete soon as far as regular stamped mail is concerned.

Getting a piece of mail delivered to anywhere in the country for 42 cents... not a bad deal.

and it costs the government more than .01 to make that penny, so it is a net loss for the government and a loss of time for you. everyone loses.:rolleyes2:
