States initials

As an 'America outsider' I have noticed people from the states all use initials for the state they are from (i think that is it)

Where can we find out what state people are talking about please?


I tried googling one the other day to see if that worked but it came out with at least 2 states for the same initial lol

Thank you

Drat, that didn't format so nicely. I hope you're able to find the info you want. What you need to google is "Postal abbreviations US states" to get this info.
