MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The financially strapped U.S. Postal Service wants to raise stamp prices again.

It could soon cost 49 cents to mail a letter.

The post office said the 3 cent price hike is a last resort to deal with extreme financial challenges.

If approved, the increase would take effect Jan. 26.

Forever stamps bought before the increase would still be good.
