ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The cost of a first class stamp and other postal services are going up Monday.

First class stamps will jump from 42 cents to 44 cents. A post card stamp will increase by a penny. Rates for international and certified mail and some box rates are also going up.  If you have a forever stamp you won't need to add extra postage come Monday.

"No, they're good, but starting Monday they will increase to 44 cents, but they will last forever," said Rudell Dunnaway, Customer Service Supervisor.

The average household is expected to pay an additional three dollars a year on first class postage. The Postal Rate Commission is raising rates to keep the average price in line with the change in the Consumer Price Index.
