While some Australians are receiving huge benefits at the bowser as world oil prices plummet to a 20-year low, residents of Cootamundra are paying much more for fuel than other nearby centres.
This morning E10 was selling for 1.22 at the Cootamundra Metro station.
Caltex Woolworths is selling E10 for 129.9 before a discount according to the Fuel Check website.
No prices were available for BP or South West Fuels on the website.
Young motorists are paying even more for fuel.
Today the Metro service station at Young is selling E10 for 135.9 cents a litre and at Caltex it is 131.9 cents a litre.
By contrast motorists is Grenfell were paying just 90.9 cents a litre at the Metro service station.
With wholesale price for regular unleaded at 82c, the NRMA's Peter Khoury says its unacceptable for petrol companies in regional areas to be jacking up prices.
Mr Khoury said there is no justification for the prices being paid by Cootamundra residents.
He said residents shouldn't expect the average price for regular unleaded to fall as low as they are in Sydney suburbs, but he said they should get close to $1 a litre.
"That whole region needs to go down," Mr Khory said.
"We're in an economic crisis and families were already struggling from the drought. This isn't the time for petrol companies in regional areas to be jacking up their prices."
HAVE YOUR SAY
Deputy Prime Minister and Riverina MP Michael McCormack has received emails from frustrated motorists.
"I am pleased lower wholesale prices are being passed on in some areas, but I am alarmed that there are pockets - including parts of the Riverina electorate - where motorists are being slugged with prices way above what they should be paying," Mr McCormack said.
"While motorists in Wagga Wagga have been able to buy Unleaded 91 petrol for as low as 91.9 cents per litre this week, motorists in Young are paying as much as 139.9 and even as high as 150.3 in one instance for E10 - that's a whopping price difference.
"A number of constituents in Young and Cootamundra have contacted me to complain about paying through the nose for petrol and I don't blame them for being upset.
"I understand there are a number of factors which often result in rural and regional areas paying more for fuel and for price drops to take longer to kick in, but for motorists those excuses are starting to wear thin.
"In these tough times when people's incomes have been cut or they have been thrown out of work because of the COVID-19 pandemic they need and deserve a fair go with petrol prices.
"We are in this together and now is not the time to make big profits at the expense of people who can least afford to pay."
