The USPS says the latest increase is necessary to 'offset the rise in inflation.'

The price to send a domestic postcard will increase to 51 cents; a 1-ounce letter mailed to another country would go to $1.50. The price for a single-piece letter and flat additional-ounce price remains at 24 cents.

The price of stamps has increased more over the last decade than at any other time in the nation's history - jumping 21 cents from the beginning of 2013 (45 cents) to next month's price hike (66 cents).
