If you're lucky enough this holiday season for Santa to bring you a little extra dough,  it might be a good idea to squirrel some away for January 6, 2012.

According to Metro Halifax, the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board has approved cost hikes for minimum self-serve and full-serve markups by 0.8 cents per litre, with a maximum self-serve markup capped at 1.1 cents per litre.
