Why do postage stamps go up every so often?

The same reason a loaf of bread isn't 10 cents any more.

Cost of doing business for the USPS. It amazes me that you can send a letter, first class across town or across the nation for only 46 cents.

Yeah, I'll still consider it a bargain after a couple more rate hikes.

Another thing people forget: The postal service will try to deliver anywhere in the world or take mail from anywhere and get it to RFD places. If a letter is unreadable or shredded they will still try. UPS and FedEx have the luxury of rejecting something if it's outside their realm or doesn't fit their format.
