I remember paying .22 cents in the 80's. LOL - and we thought that was too high back then and started to Bulk Mailings!

Three cents Will Hamm . That being said I had/have a stamp collection my dad started in the 1930's so I've seen plenty of one centers as well.

I can't remember that far back, Will. I pay no attention to increases in postage as I buy my stamps on line and pay an average 20 cents per stamp.

Government run, do increases surprise you? Will service improve? No to each question sums it up well.

Five cents, I remember how upset folks got when it went up to ten cents.

Dont worry, the usps will be out of business soon as we move further into a world where they are not needed.

Not sure, Will. Stamps for mailings are still a relatively economical way to send cards and small packages. Other delivery companies are expensive!
