  • Lubricant Marketers Get Slammed With Price Increases - Buyers Will be Next!
  • April has been an ugly month for most lubricant marketers and the reason why is that within the last week all but one major oil company increased its price of finished lubricants $0.28 to a whopping $0.64 a gallon. The average bump was about $0.35 a gallon. And the price increases didn't stop with the majors. Several of the largest independent lubricant manufacturers in the country also announced a price increase of $0.20 to $0.22 a gallon. Most of these increases take effect within 30 days. So hang on to your hats and expect May to be an ugly month for lubricant buyers. Your prices too will likely go up.
