With the United States Postal Service hemorrhaging money, it’s easy to get confused as to the current price of a postage stamp.
The current price is 46 cents.
In November 2012, the USPS announced that it will be increasing stamp prices on January 27th, 2013. First Class mail letters will increase by a penny to 46 cents while postcards will see an increase of a penny to 33 cents.
This is the price of a first-class letter weighing no more than 1 ounce. If the weight is no more than 2 ounces, the price is 66 cents. No more than 3 ounces and we’re talking eighty six cents. Postcards cost 33 cents. If you purchased a First Class Forever stamp, you don’t have to worry about the current stamp price because that will always cover letters weighing no more than 1 ounce.
The last postage rate increase  was on January 27nd, 2013.
