The Forever Stamp

As of May 14, the U.S. Post Office will be again raising the price of stamps. This time the price will go from 39 cents to 41 cents.

Also, which I though was kind of neat, they are introducing a "forever" stamp. It can be purchased for 41 cents, and even if the prices raise again, it will still valid:
"In 2007, the U.S. Postal Service will issue the Forever stamp, which will always be valid as First-Class postage on standard envelopes weighing one ounce or less, regardless of any subsequent increases in the First-Class rate.

The stamp art depicts the Liberty Bell, which is perhaps the most prominent and recognizable symbol associated with American independence. Over the years, the historic significance of the bell's message has transcended our national borders, and today the Liberty Bell is an international icon of freedom. Replicas of the Liberty Bell exist in all fifty states and the District of Columbia."
