What is the cost of postage stamps?

I know that postage stamps are always on the rise and am not sure what they cost right now.

You can buy postage stamps right now for $0.28 to mail a postcard of maximum size 4"X6" within the United States. A larger postcard - up to 6"X11.5" - costs $0.44, the same as a letter. To mail a postcard internationally, you need an international rate stamp, which currently costs $0.98.

The price of a first class letter stamp is currently 44 cents for up letters weighing up to one ounce. This means that a book of stamps, which contains 20 stamps, will cost $8.80. The next price level, for letters up to two ounces, is 61 cents for a stamp. Postcard stamps currently cost 28 cents.

Unfortunately, postage stamps now cost $.44 ever since the latest price hike in the spring of 2009. If you have only old stamps, such as the $.42 ones, usually postage stamp machines or post offices will offer a small cheap stamp costing the difference. If you choose not to purchase this, the recipient must pay the difference!

A first class stamp is 44 cents. That is for a "regular" letter weighing not more than one ounce. The regular price for a postcard is 28 cents. You can get fee info at the USPS website!
