OK so I'm about to bite the bullet and take advantage of the $14.00 price on the 5 quart jugs of Maxlife at Walmart. As much as I dislike WM and their practices, I can get Maxlife there for less than half price over Napa and the other parts stores right now. It's an offer I can't refuse. The reason I'm buying at WM and stashing up at least 4 or 5 jugs is I really think the price of motor oil will not come down any time this year. I may even stash more jugs than that, depending on how long the sale holds out. Motor oil went up last year and never has come down in price since. I used to buy Maxlife for around $3.00 to $3.50 a quart, now it's almost twice that much. Anyone have any idea/speculation/inside info on what the price of oil will do this Spring or when we get into the "summer driving season"? I will say I wished I had been stashing oil all along here in the last year or so. Even the price of Napa brand HM oil is approaching $4.00 per quart. I think it would be smart now to build my own Strategic Oil and Filter Reserve. I'm very interested in what we all think about this.
