USPS Prices Changing Again – Really!

USPS Price RollbacksGood news!  It looks like the United States Postal Service (USPS) will be decreasing market dominated product lines prices. The new price lists can be found on the USPS Postal Explorer site. Both lists can be downloaded as Excel and CSV files (drafts as of this publication.) You will also fine the Draft Postage Statements (2/5/16) and the Postage Statement List of Changes (2/5/16).

Remember that both the regular CPI increase and the exigent increases were approved by the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC.) The PRC ruled the increase was temporary, since the reasons for the increase were determined to be exigent. Well times up! The USPS must do a Wal-Mart-Roll-Back” of their prices by the amount of the original exigent increases. The new prices will go into effect in April 2016. The exact date has not been released.
