Just checked their website and it looks like they jacked up prices by roughly 5%. I guess it just cuz thier oil got so much better with recent reformulation? yet another reason to love this brand

Additive costs have been rising consistently this past year and many of the majors have increased costs.

I don't know that Amsoil is really all that much better than it was ten year ago. But when your Competition like Mobil raises the price of their flagship oil from like $30 to the nearly $50 price for their AP you have some room to capture some more profit.

AP is just under $40. EP is $28+ for 5 qts at WM, and reg M1 is $25+. Or at least it was the last time I bought oil.

Mobil 1 or Pennzoil Platinum for me. Not an Amsoil fan at all.

Has there be anything that proves the AP to do anything better that Mobils other well proven offerings?
