Saw at walmart today that Mobil 1 is now $26.68 for a 5 qt. However, PP with pure plus is $25.17. I then saw Castrol syntec 0w20 for $21.97. Is syntec good? And what do you think about M1 price hike... seems a bit ridiculous given oil prices dropped 9%.

The price is near historical averages, the $22 over the summer was some sort of special.

Yeah, I stocked up then but have used all but one 5 qt jug. Between 2 cars that take 0w20 and following the OLM on the Toyota, we only average 6-7k in between changes.

Crude Oil prices may have dropped, but the cost to refine, package, ship, retail ect has not changed. Base oil is a small part of the over all cost.
