HALIFAX - A small jump in the price of gasoline was reported across Nova Scotia on Friday. 

The province's Utility and Review Board used its week adjustment to raise regulated price by 1.6 cents per litre at midnight, driving the minimum price up to $1.11.2/L. 

A bigger increase in the price of diesel recorded on Friday morning as the maximum price rose 2.5 cents per litre to a maximum price of $114.9/L. 

One year ago Friday drivers were paying $1.05 for gasoline and $1.08 for diesel.

Oil traded at $53.44 U.S. per barrel, just over $9 per barrel less than Thursday's closing price of $62.75.
