"Special" is a rehash of a branding they used years ago; most likely a misnomer.

Is this the base oil that Super 5000 is compared against?

Ahhhh!!! So that's why they cleared out Shell and Pennzoil! I was wondering what was up with that. Oh well, I bought enough Shell and Pennzoil from their clearance sale to take me the next couple of years.

I'll have to check my store next time I am there but I thought it was 2.59 or 2.49 a qt. 2.99 is a bit high for that in my mind.

Yeah it was $2.49 a quart at one of the Targets I struck out... mad looking for Formula Shell or PYB at clearance.
