BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — You might have to shell out more money for postal services next year.

The U.S. Postal Service is proposing an increase in prices. Those would start January 26th.

The proposed prices vary by product, but mailing services would increase about 1.9 percent.

Basic letters and postcards will not be impacted. Priority Mail Express will increase by 3.5 percent and Priority Mail by 4.1 percent.

The changes were approved by the Postal Service Governors. They say the new rates will keep the service competitive.

The Postal Regulatory Commission still needs to approve the changes.
