  • WHAT WERE/ARE THEY THINKING????

    On January 7, 2006 Jobbers World reported that Castrol was the first major to increase the price of its finished lubricants in 2006. Taking effect on March 1, 2006, word on the street was that Castrol would increase the price of all Castrol GTX PCEO by $0.28 a gallon on bulk and $0.36 a gallon on packaged product. Its mid-tier PCEOs (including GTX High Mileage, Startup, and Syntec Blend) will reportedly increase $0.36 and $0.44 a gallon for bulk and packaged, respectively. And according to Jobbers Worlds sources, Castrol was set to bump the price of its synthetic PCEO up by $0.64 a gallon for both bulk and packaged product.

    Well Think Again! For reasons only a few will likely ever know, late breaking word on the street this morning is that Castrol rescinded its $0.36 a gallon increase announced for March 1st, and increased it to a $0.56 a gallon, effective March 13th.

    OUCH!


    CALLING ALL LUBRICANT MARKETERS!

    Ever wonder what lubricant marketers really think about the majors? Have you ever wished you had an opportunity to tell the majors how you really feel about their programs and practices without fear of retribution and reprisal?

    Well now is your chance! Some of the majors want to know what you really think. They want to know how they really rank and rate in comparision to other suppliers. They want to know becuase they want to improve how they do business with you.

    Jobbers World will collate and analyze the responses of you and your colleagues and produce a summary report for every lubricant marketer who participates. You'll have exclusive access to our summary report, which will help you assess how your supplier compares to other majors.

    THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SURVEY AND TO JOIN OTHER MARKETERS IN MAKING SURE YOU ARE HEARD WITHOUT BEING SEEN! Your participation in this survey will be kept confidential. Responses will only be presented in aggregate form. Thanks in advance for participating in this important and timely survey.
