The U.S. Postal Service has announced new prices for services starting January 27, 2019. These were approved by the Governors of the Postal Service and represent a 2.5% price hike on Mailing Services. They still need to be approved by the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC). I wonder if this means that Amazon Prime memberships will see a price increase? The Postal Service has some of the lowest letter mail postage rates in the industrialized world and also continues to offer a great value in shipping. Unlike some other shippers, the Postal Service does not add surcharges for fuel, residential delivery, or regular Saturday or holiday season delivery.
