  • The post office is a non-profit orginization. The price of a stamp depends on how much it takes to pay the employees and transportation costs of the mail. People don't send letters as much because it's easier to keep in contact with people via the internet, and many people send things with Fed ex rather then the post office.

  • It's going up to 44cents.

    I get annoyed with the rising prices only because the service I get from the post office gets worse and worse. I've had them take months, literally, to forward my mail. I would mind paying more if they would use the money to improve their service.

  • In my opinion (and forgive me for having one!) it is time to make the post office privatized, like UPS. The not for profit thing is not working! They seem unable to remain competitive!
