The U.S. Postal Service is moving ahead with its decision to increase costs on August 29 in an effort to boost revenue.

According to a letter from USPS Vice President of Government Elations and Public Policy Peter Pastre, “Under the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act (PAEA) of 2006, the PRC [Postal Regulations Commission] administers regulations and pricing rules based on whether a product is considered ‘market dominant’ or ‘competitive. Since the enhancement of the PAEA, the USPS has not had sufficient pricing authority for its market-dominant products to adequately respond to changing market realities.”

First-class mail stamp prices will increase from 55 cents to 58 cents, and general mail products will see average price increases of about 6.8 percent. Costs for magazines, newspapers, and catalogs will increase by 8 percent.
