SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Post Offices in Utah say they're bracing for a rush of customers who want to buy a "Forever Stamp."

The Forever stamp will cost 41 cents - but it will be good even if the price of stamps increase. The stamps go on sale today.

Rana Alexander is the supervisor at the downtown station. She says people have been asking about the stamp for weeks and expects it to sell better than most new stamp releases.

In anticipation of that jump, the downtown station has twenty times more Forever stamps 40,000 in all than new 41-cent stamps, which will be on sale May 14th, when stamp prices will rise from their current 39 cents.
