The U.S. Postal Service will leave 50 cent forever stamps behind by the end of the month, increasing their price by five cents.
While 2019 post office price changes vary by mailing service, the fees rolling out the last Sunday of the month will increase prices by 2.5 percent.
The postal service lost $3.9 billion in 2018, attributing the losses to drops in mail volume and the costs of pensions and health care.
It marked the 12th year in a row the agency reported a loss despite growth in package shipping.
