According to CNN Money, The price of a stamp is about to go up -- and more so than expected.

A panel overseeing the U.S. Postal Service approved a three-cent hike from the current price of 46 cents. It will take effect on January 26.

That includes a one-cent increase -- to keep pace with inflation -- approved by the Postal Regulatory Commission last month. At the time, the cash-strapped Postal Service had sought the three-cent bump.
