1 and 2 cent stamps going the way of the Pony Express

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash- Snail mailers are getting a break from the postal service.

All new first class stamps will be forever stamps beginning next month.

The U.S. postal service has been raising rates more frequently in recent years as it tries to dig out of a deep financial hole.

But under its new policy, which should be formally announced in mid January, people mailing the average letter won't have to dig for those one and two cent stamps anymore.
