Dubbo fuel prices are among the highest in the Central West, with a lack of competition to blame.
As of Wednesday afternoon, Dubbo's average price for unleaded petrol was sitting at 143.9 cents per litre, whereas, in other Central Western locations, petrol is being sold at a far lower price.
Orange is currently sitting at an average of 138.9 cents per litre, Bathurst is sitting on an average of 140.9 cents per litre and Lithgow's average is 137 cents per litre.
NRMA spokesperson Bridget Ahern said the price divide is due to a lack of competition in Dubbo and independent sellers.
"For places such as Orange, Bathurst and Lithgow there is a much more competitive market and more independent sellers which indicates cheaper fuel prices," Ms Ahern said.
"Unfortunately, for Dubbo, that's not the case. However, the good news is we have been seeing a drop in the prices across NSW this last week and we should continue to see prices fall a few more cents across all of NSW in the next coming weeks.
"The best thing for people to do is to shop around for the best prices.
