The U.S. Postal Service is making another proposal, but not the kind Americans dream of.

By January 26 the price of shipping rates could go up as much as 2.4 percent.

Check out the proposed price changes. Save up for the price hike or research ways to ship for less. Our relationship with U.S.P.S. may be about to change.

Even in an increasingly digital world, the Postal Service remains part of the bedrock infrastructure of this nation’s economy, serving its people and businesses and binding the nation together.

The core function of the Postal Service is the safe, reliable, affordable delivery of mail and packages to every address in the country and its territories.

The Postal Service delivers more mail to more addresses in a larger geographical area than any other post in the world.

The timely service provided daily depends on an astonishing network of facilities, technology and people that collect, transport, process and deliver the nation’s mail.
