Not to be rude or anything, but the last time there was a clearance, I politely asked you which stores you'd hit so as to not duplicate efforts. You didn't reply at that time, yet you replied to the thread afterwards and to other queries...

Is it just me or does anyone else notice an overabundance of clearance oils at the parts stores this year? Inventory/ordering system out of whack? Lower demand?

less people change their oil themselves every year, modern cars use far less oil between changes, oil change intervals are longer, and there are more varieties of oil out there... so that means more clearance oil i guess?

They should, its part of its upkeep. Not needed very often but still needed. Same with coolant.

Could be the switch to SN+ spec or inventory changes. So far once the AAP's in my area sell out the Mobil HM and Super Syn, Mobil 1 takes its place on the shelf.

On the other hand, AAP did a big Mobil oil clearance last year as well (Oct 2018). Mobil Super 5000, Pennzoil Platinum Full Syn and yellow jug conventional, all around $3.xx. There was BIOG thread about at the time but it disappeared for some reason.

In any case enjoy it while it lasts, oil clearance sales were few and far between for a couple of years. It got so bad once my stockpile from the K-Mart oil clearance days was gone I was forced to buy Smittys Super S a few times. blush

Stumbled upon an AAP on Havana in Denver that had been picked over hard BUT the Carquest full syn 10W-40 never had the price changed on the floor.

They rang up $2.55 ea and I got 3 jugs. I left a few because at this point my stash is ridiculous. The employee said he was gonna grab the rest for his vehicle but he seemed to have as much follow-thru as the pimply-faced, crackly-voiced fast food kid on The Simpsons

My AAP had some Castrol GTX 40 weight for 10 bucks for 5 quarts. Not bad. However, AZ had some serious clearance oil. Picked up 15, 5 gallon jugs of modern engine Valvoline and another 7, 5 gallon jugs of Rotella truck. 29 and 30 weight. 10 bucks for those too. Rebate on 4 of them.
I saw Mobil 1 AP but it wasn’t on sale in my area of Fl.
Have seen zero mobil1 super synthetic on sale.

Ive been checking my local AAPs for months and havent found jack on clearance. I cant imagine they move much oil at full price. Are people really paying $13 a qt for M1?
