Besides the supposedly temporary increase from 46 to 49 cents per ounce domestically within the USA, less reported is the USPS increase in international mail rates. Last year 1 oz to Mexico soared from 85 cents to $1.10 as the US placed all international destinations in the same one price category for 1st class letter mail. If sending letters to Mexico, please take note that as of Jan. 26, 2014, all international mail from the U.S. costs $1.15 for the first ounce.

A bit of a sad commentary on our current times and technology. The USPS, and others around the world, are in self imposed death spirals as they are being replaced by online services and so they continue to have to raise prices to pay for pensions and inefficiency which causes them to lose more business, so they raise the price etc.
