Lubricant Prices Rising Again

3 posts in this topic

So far in July, Shell (Shell, Pennzoil, Quaker State) has announced a 6% increase in finished lubricant prices effective September 15, Chevron has announced a 6 to 9% increase effective September 14 and Citgo has announced its MileMaster prices will increase from $0.24 to $0.40 per gallon effective August 15. Several larger independent lubricant companies have also announced increases in the $0.40 to $0.60 per gallon range, with most being implemented by the end of July. According to Tom Glenn of Petroleum Trends International, the reason for the increases is clear. “Base oil prices have increased from $0.50 to $0.75 a gallon in just the past 30 days,” he says.

As always, AMSOIL will control costs and hold the line on pricing to the absolute best of its ability, but never at the sacrifice of quality.

Havoline at Fleet Farm last weekend was around $3.30. A 5-gallon jug of the recommended blend for my new car was $11.50 at another store.

It's pretty hard to justify changing my own oil outside the normal service cycle.

Guess I didn't pay much attention...did the price of lubricants rise and fall in the same general proportion as gasoline and / or crude oil?
