So where I live there is no Pennzoil platinum or QSUD in 5W30 at any of the three Walmarts or meijer. Anyone else experiencing this?

Best thing is just to do a "free ship to store" thingy to your nearest store.

When Walmarts run rollbacks they often get cleaned out. When my 3 local stores ran the Thanksgiving weekend PP at $19.97/jug, they sold out of everything. Those shelves weren't properly stocked for months after that. And in some cases, still aren't.

Somebody on here pointed out that SOPUS' Pearl GTL plant is in Qatar, which is under an embargo of sorts by its neighbors...might be a big PITA for production of some of their oils.

I found this doing some searching. It could very well be a problem for Shell.

Could it still be ripple effects of the GTL allocation? - https://jobbersworldblog.com/2017/02/27/shell-puts-marketers-on-pureplus-allocation/

Appears to be another big shortage on 5Qt 5w-30. Sold out at Walmart. Sold out at Amazon. $37.99 everywhere else.
