Look for another increase in the price for gasoline across Nova Scotia this week.

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

George Murphy of Consumers for Fair Gas Prices says oil prices climbed this week, but expects additional supply to enter the market slowing the rise.

"Any time you see the price of oil increase anywhere above $50 a barrel, you start to see that increase interest on the part of small-time operators south of the border getting back into the shale resources, and pumping oil from shale," said Murphy.

Across the border in New Brunswick prices went up slightly to a new maximum price of 110.9.
