1st-Class Stamps to Cost 37 Cents as of June 30

April 10, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Starting June 30, it will cost more to keep those cards and letters coming.

The first-class mail rate will rise 3 cents to 37 cents and most other prices will also go up. The new rates were approved in February, and the effective date was announced Tuesday by the Postal Service's board of governors.

At the same time, Postmaster General John Potter repeated his promise that rates won't rise again until at least 2004.

The post office said nondenominated stamps valued at the new 37-cent rate will go on sale in mid-June.
