Consumers apparently still believe a penny saved is a penny earned, as many rushed this week to buy Forever stamps that will help them avoid a pending 1-cent rate hike in first-class postage .

消費者顯然還是認為「省一文錢等於掙一文錢」,所以大家趕著在平信基本郵資即將調漲1分美金之前去買這種「永遠的郵票」。

"a penny saved is a penny earned" 能省一分錢便是賺到一分錢。 "rush to" 趕著去。"Forever stamps" 以自由鐘為圖的「永遠」郵票,見上圖。"pending" 迫近的。 "rate"在此指的是郵資; "rate hike" 郵資調漲。"first-class postage" 第一類郵資,即一般信件的基本郵資,其郵資決定於郵件的形狀與重量。
