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?

    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
