|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
gallon for both bulk and packaged product.
Well Think Again! For reasons only a few will
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morning is that Castrol rescinded its $0.36 a gallon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.
