USPS looks to raise the price of stamps. Gray Hall reports during Action News at 6 a.m. on October 13, 2018.

You could soon be paying more to send off that letter.

That's because the U.S. Postal Service has asked to increase the price of its first-class stamp.

Its board of governors has requested a five-cent increase to the forever stamp.

That would make it 55 cents per stamp.

If approved, the increase would take effect in January.

The new price plan comes at a time when USPS is struggling with sales, as mail has been replaced with electronic communication.
