Was walking through Walmart today and noticed that a section of penzzoil platinum in the isle was marked $27.76.Looked like regular PP and PPHM.

On Walmarts website the PPHM is the only one up to 27.76 with no changes to PPU or PP.

Has anyone else noticed this?

If Pennzoil Platinum raised it's price, then what is PP and how is it different than Pennzoil Platinum?

Yeah, Platinum has been a little weird lately and I think it has a lot to do with the Ultra. Platinum was out of stock on Amazon in most viscosities until recently, now 5W-30 is $37 while 0W-20 is still listed for $22. Ultra was able to be had for $24 in 5W-30, but it was in and out of stock. Now it's back in stock but Amazon has it listed for $34, still cheaper than Platinum.

All things oil related will be going up... A fair amount too. ELDs in 18 wheelers are causing a lot of increase in shipping costs. One full day extra for transporting goods equals a lot more cost to be passed on to customers.

Yep. It had a big sign $27.76. Still had individual price of $22.47. I saw them recently when they were marking it down. I had guy in tire department check. It
rang up $27.76 for 5w-20 PP. He was going to change the price labels next to each container.

Stuff goes up and down. Diet Pepsi is $1.48 for a month or two, then a rollback to $1.00. After awhile its back to $1.48, although no "roll up" in price sign. I suspect some of this is promotions by the manufacturer. So watch the price and buy low.

I am looking for synthetic 0W20 now that I am out of the few cases I had of NAPA brand for $2.99/QT.

These increases are not likely to be temporary though.... Again... Shipping via 18 wheeler has increased a lot to the newly implemented ELDs in those trucks.... This will not help regular everyday people in this country.

Basically- it's an electronic logging device to monitor a driver's hours. There are regulations in place on how many hours a driver may drive/ be on duty per day. Drivers used to log their hours on paper logs, and if they needed to drive a few extra hour to reach their destination, they could be "fudged" as it was just pencil on paper. Electronic logs are unbending, which means drivers no longer have that option.

As a result of the adjustment to the new system, the turnover rate for truckloads has decreased. This combined with an economic boom creating more demand for truckload capacity has lead to freight rates that are much higher than they were in years past.

Pennzoil can't provide a 5 quart jug of synthetic oil for much less than $30?

Has anyone looked at the price of crude lately? Something is badly whacked somewhere, in all of this.

Meanwhile... D1-G2 spec: https://www.ruralking.com/oil-hk-5w20-full-synthetic-5qt.html $9.99.

I encountered the new $27.76 higher price for Pennzoil Plat in a Walmart a few days.
No thanks walmart, Amazon.com still sells it for about $22, free shipping, zero tax too.

It SUCKS!!!

Driver's get "stuck" because the slow idiots at the loading terminal ran all their hours out, and now they can't LEGALLY drive to a truckstop to sleep.

It has caused WAAAY more problems than it solves..... but you can thank insurance companies and lawyers for making the prices go up on everything!

I just ordered (4) 5-quart jugs of PUP 5w20 from Amazon for less than $25 each... no thanks, Suckmart. Iíve got at least 3 years worth of OCI with PUP at 17-20k changes.
