No Price Increase For Stamps Next Year

Ed O'Keefe of the Washington Post reports, "Americans will continue to pay 44 cents for first-class stamps in 2010, and the price to mail catalogues and magazines will also stay the same, according to an internal Postal Service memo."

Postmaster General John E. Potter is quoted as saying in a memo he sent to postal staff members and some customer groups late last week, "Simply stated, there will not be a price increase for market dominant products including First-Class Mail, Standard Mail, periodicals and single-piece Parcel Post."

Ed goes on to say, "The memo leaves open the door to a price jump for Priority Mail, Express Mail, Parcel Select and some international services. A final decision will be announced next month."
