CASPER, Wyo. — Beginning July 10, the U.S. Postal Service will roll out several price changes.
The cost of postage stamps will increase from 58 cents to 60 cents, and the cost to mail one metered mail piece will increase from 53 cents to 57 cents, the USPS said in a June 15 article. Postcard stamps will be 44 cents instead of 40 cents.
The USPS said that the price adjustments help implement the Delivering for America plan amid inflation and increased operating expenses.
The Delivering for America plan includes $40 billion in capital investment in postal service infrastructure by fiscal year 2030. Those capital investments include $20 billion toward mail and packaging processing, including USPS facility space upgrades and new processing equipment; $19 billion for retail and delivery, which will include acquiring new delivery vehicles; and $2 billion for technology upgrades. USPS will also be reducing its use of air transport for mail.
