Yet Another Devaluation!

When will all this devaluation business end?

For the first time in nearly 97 years, the price of a stamp is set to go down.

From CNN - "On April 10, a first-class stamp will cost 47 cents, down from its current 49-cent price. The reduction is part of a pre-arranged agreement with Congress. The Post Office got to increase the price of stamps by 3 cents in 2014 to help it raise $4.6 billion in revenue. But the price hike was only set to last two years. (It gets to keep one cent of the increase to keep up with inflation)."

This is gonna kill all those who MSed buying stashes of Forever Stamps!

That's a devaluation I can get behind.
