The United States Postal Service is planning for a temporary price hike.

It will go into effect from October 18th to December 27th of this year.

The price increase is due to the high demand for online items. Package shipments will see a rate increase anywhere from 24 cents to as much as $1.50.

USPS filed the notice with the postal regulatory commission.

The price hike is expected to still keep the postal service rates competitive while providing the agency with needed revenue.
