Starting Sunday, it's going to cost an extra penny to send a first-class letter via the cash-strapped U.S. Postal Service.
The increase means it will cost you 45 cents to send a letter within the United States.

In addition to the one-cent increase on a first-class letters, other rate increases that begin Sunday include:
- a 3-cent increase in postcards to 32 cents.
- a 5-cent increase to 85 cents for 1 oz. letters sent to Canada or Mexico.
- a 7-cent increase to $1.05 for letters send to other international destinations.
