Advanced Lubrication Specialties: As noted in  the April 19th issue of JobbersWorld, Advanced Lubrication Specialties (ALS) announced a price increase.

Its price on full synthetics will increase by $0.80 a gallon.  These increases are effective May 9, 2011.

This allocation will be strictly enforced starting with orders placed 4/11/11. Freight discounts or TVA'S will be discontinued on orders placed in April.
