The U.S. Postal Service is raising the price of stamps this weekend.
Beginning Sunday, stamps will increase by 3 cents from 46 to 49 cents.
The hike is the largest in consumer postage prices in more than a decade and is supposed to keep up with inflation and recoup losses incurred during the recession.
USPS reported a $5 billion loss in the latest fiscal year, less than recent years but in addition to years of losses.
