Gas prices are up in Nova Scotia by seven cents, after weeks of minor cost changes.

Overnight on Friday, prices went from $1.49 to $1.56 for regular self-serve gasoline at the pump.

Cape Bretoners continue to pay the most for gas in the province, now up to $1.60 for regular self-serve.

The last time the cost of gasoline was as high was in late January, when prices were approaching $1.60 minimum. January also saw the most recent seven-cent jump, when the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board triggered its interrupter clause on Jan. 7.

Diesel prices went down by two cents overnight.
