Gas Prices Fuel Stamp Increase

If you stick a 37 cent stamp on an envelope to be mailed, it won't get very far.

Monday was the first official business day of the brand new 39 cent stamp. Employees at a Kinston Post Office say they received several complaints about the increase last week, but things are running smoothly now that customers have accepted the price change.

Customer service supervisor Robin Sassic says the extra money will be used to cover the increased cost of fuel.
