Look for a small jump at gas pumps across Nova Scotia overnight.

Our newsroom is predicting that when regulated prices are adjusted at midnight, they will climb by about a penny per litre.

George Murphy of Consumers for Fair Gas Prices told NEWS 95.7 most of the market indicators are showing an increase this week.

“The simple fact is when you’ve got oil up a little bit along with demand up a little touch, you’re going to see prices touched a little bit,” he said.

Across the border in New Brunswick, prices climbed by 1.1 cents, moving the maximum price up to 107.9.
