Airports are being hit with more travel issues as a record number of Americans travel during the extended 4th of July weekend. FlightAware reports that over 600 flights within, into, or out of the U.S. were canceled Sunday and more than 7,000 flights were delayed.
New York area airports were among the hardest hit, along with Philadelphia and Boston. The latest disruptions come amid severe weather threats throughout the U.S. in recent days.
Meanwhile, the cost of mailing a letter is going up. The U.S. Postal Service is hiking the price of a stamp from 63 cents to 66 cents. This month will mark the fourth price increase in two years on Forever Stamps.
USPS says the new hike is needed to offset inflation. The postal service will also increase rates for packages and marketing mail. The changes will take effect on Sunday, July 9.
