I just went on Walmart.com to look at their motor oil and ALL Mobil 1 synthetics increased by 3$. they use to be $22 now it's close to $26. Anyone else notice it?

I'm seeing $25.17 for pickup in Eastern Massachusetts stores. The prices are literally changing before my eyes, as my computer loads the webpage. After initially clicking on it, it says $22.66 and then quickly changes to $25.17.

It was on sale for $22 dollars for a while, then it went back to its previous price of $26...

It's still dirt cheap. Us Americans complain about gas and oil prices a little too much. Everywhere else it's wayyy more. Some places in Europe gas is $9 a gallon, probably a lot more. I can get gas for $2.99 a gallon.

Which kind, and is that regular price or rollback? Proximity to U.S. Walmarts might be affecting that.

Garak, just got back from Walmart...5L jugs are $24.95 now. However 4.73L of PYB jugs are still 13.88 ever though they were under a $24.95 sign. Always buy the 4.723 Liter size. I also bought some Platinum GTL 2W20 for $22.95. Not sure if that stuff is any good???

Since when? I though I saw 28 a jug for PYB a few weeks ago. Not that I'm buying any. Once my stash is gone im done with this sale shopping nonsense. I'm going to run everything on elite 222 0w-30 that I can get from the imperial oil distributor in 5 gallon pails and that's it. 5 gallon pails of rotella for the bikes and the only big money lube I'll be buying is redline gear oil.

As of this morning, prices haven't changed locally. PP and M1 remain on rollback for twenty-two dollars and change. This may be because we have a regional chain, Meijer, with many locations in the area that matches WM on most oil prices. Meijer now even carries jugs of M1 0W-40 as well as in both viscosities of AFE, all for twenty two bucks and change, just like Wally.
