Gas prices in Nova Scotia went up by 6.7 cents Wednesday after the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board triggered the interrupter clause, which allows it to make price adjustments outside of the usual Friday price change.

The minimum price of regular, unleaded self-serve gasoline in the Halifax area is now 152.9 cents per litre.

In the eastern Annapolis Valley and in Kings and Lunenburg Counties, the price is 153.5 cents per litre.

People in the Digby, Yarmouth, Shelburne, Queens and western Annapolis Valley areas will pay 154 cents per litre.

The cost is 154.1 cents a litre for the Colchester, Pictou, Antigonish and Guysborough areas.
