That's right, folks! As of May 11, 2009, stamps will go up 2¢ to 44¢ per stamp...
We'd all better stock up on Forever Stamps (The Forever stamp will always be valid as First–Class postage on standard envelopes weighing one ounce or less, regardless of any subsequent increases in the First–Class rate.) now before the price increase takes effect. After May 11, 2009, Forever stamps will go up to 44¢ also but any you buy now at 42¢ will be usable after the 2¢ increase.
