(CNN) - The U.S. Postal Service plans to raise the prices during the peak holiday season for the third year in a row.
The postal service said the temporary price increase on a variety of mail services would offset rising delivery costs.
The increases will range from 25 cents to $6 per package.
They will cover individual and business mailings for priority mail, priority mail express and first-class package service.
They would go into effect on Oct. 2 and last through Jan. 22.
The postal regulation commission has to give the green light for the higher rates to go into effect.
