Price of Postage Goes Up Monday

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON--You've sent your Mother's Day cards but it's going to cost more to mail Father's Day cards next month.

The price of postage goes up Monday.

A one-ounce first class stamp goes from 42 cents to 44.  The price of mailing packages and periodicals is also going up.

A U.S. Postal Service rep said the increase is a result of adjusting for inflation.
