Sounds like cable stretch. Turn your barrel adjusters at your shifters (little knob thingies where the cable comes out of the shifter) out counter clockwise in 1/2 turn increments with test rides in between to see if that helps. Shouldn't require more than 1.5 turns.
Also as JasBike said, lube the chain as well!
