COLUMBUS, Ohio - Gas prices are on the rise in central Ohio.

On Thursday, many stations were selling a gallon of regular unleaded for $2.99. Prices haven't been that high since October 2014, according to GasBuddy.

Oil producers like Saudi Arabia and Russia have lowered production recently with recent concerns over the Iran conflict driving prices up.

Experts say the price increase could cost families an extra $250 in the summer months ahead.
