(CNN) - The United States Postal Service is planning for a temporary price increase that will go into effect from Oct. 18 to Dec. 27.
The price increase is due to the high demand for online items.
Package shipments will see a rate increase anywhere from 24 cents to as much as $1.50.
USPS filed the notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission.
The price increase is expected to still keep the postal service rates competitive while providing the agency with much needed revenue.
