Newspaper Mail Hit Hard Again By US Postal Service
The U.S. Postal Service has announced another postage increase for July 9 that again sends Periodicals postage into the double-digit zone for annual increases. This mid-year hike will be 8.8% for Within County newspapers and 8.1% for Outside County newspapers.
Newspapers have already absorbed nearly 24% in price increases since the Postal Regulatory Commission lifted the inflation-based price cap on post age for the 2021 round of increases.
