The Lift in Retail PCMO Prices


The price for conventional passenger car motor oil (PCMO) at the leading big box retailer increased by 11.0% year to date. Synthetic engine oils increased by 5.9%, as shown below.

A comparison of retail PCMO prices (June 2010 and June 2011) at the leading big box retailer follows. It should be noted that the synthetic lubricant price average shown above does not correspond to the average shown below because the data set below includes only selected majors and the store brand. It should also be noted that Pennzoil Ultra shows no increase from 2010 to 2011 due to a price rollback at the time of price data sampling.
