  • ConocoPhillips Follows the Crowd

    ConocoPhillips advised its marketers today that it will increase the price for its finished lubricants by 6 to 9% effective March 1, 2010. The price increase is said to be dependent on product specific factors.

    According to marketers, ConocoPhillips says this increase is driven by recent increases in base oil, additives and packaging costs.

    Petro-Canada also bumps price

    Effective February 24, 2010, Petro-Canada advised its marketers it will increase its lubricant prices for all package sizes by 8%.

    Marketers are also told this increase does not include the process oil and white oil increases that go into effect on Feb 10, 2010. As previously reported in JobbersWorld, effective February 10, 2010, Petro-Canada will increase the price of its process oils and white oils by $0.20 to $0.30 a gallon depending on type and grade.

    Haycock Petroleum Company Named Master Distributor for Sinclair

    Haycock Petroleum Company (HPC) has been named a Master Distributor of Sinclair's Arctic Fire lubricant products throughout the company's distribution territory. HPC plans to distribute Sinclair Arctic fire Lubricants in Nevada, Utah, Arizona and parts of Idaho. Currently, Sinclair Oil supplies fuel and oil product through a network of distributors and dealers in 23 states from the Great Plains to the Rocky Mountains, reaching 3,000 convenience stores.

    "Haycock's knowledge of the markets they service should contribute to broader distribution of Sinclair's quality lubricant line", said Greg Iverson, Marketing Manager for Sinclair Oil Corporation. "Along with Sinclair's other valued distributors, the addition of Haycock Petroleum as a Master Distributor completes coverage in the Western mountain States."

    Haycock Petroleum Company is a full line commercial distributor of refined petroleum products including gasoline, diesel, lubricants and propane through 17 locations in California, Idaho, Nevada, and Utah.
