The cost of mailing a letter goes up a penny Monday, to 42 cents. But the increase won't affect you if you have forever stamps.Monday's rate hike is the latest in what will probably be annual price adjustment by the postal service. A new law regulating the post office makes it easier to raise rates.

The cost of sending post cards will also rise by a penny to 27 cents Monday.
