I was at the Pasco post office the other day and I heard the post office clerk tell a customer that stamps cost .50 cents, I was floored .50 cents when did that happen?

Well to my surprise 1st class postage stamps are set to have a price increase at the end of this month from .50 cents to .55 cents...yep they're going up again. I  know a lot of people don't do snail mail but some of us still do...so grab those 50 cent stamps before they go up on January 27th to 55 cents!!
