This past Saturday my boss showed up with all this Chevron Supreme 5/10w30 from Costco for 83 cents a quart!!! There was another pickup truck with another whole palette in the bed that I didn’t get a picture of.

We're a old school Chevron full service station and mechanic, so lots of oil changes smile

Wow. How does this compare to Pit Packs or barrels in terms of $/qt?

Seriously now,
1) Was there any hassle in getting the loading doors open? Seriously, did it take time and repeat messages?

2) Did any employee wonder aloud if there was a limit; with seeking approval from a superior?

3) What was the total in quarts and in $?

I haven't priced out pit packs before, barrels from Oreilly from what I've seen doesn't save me anything over individual quarts. Don't have the space for barrels honestly.

I have no clue what went down honestly. The guy that tends my bosses crawfish ponds saw them selling for 83 cents/quart and alerted him. If i had to guess, total after tax was $2938.04

Now if I were to sell every quart @ retail of $5.95 thats $21,061.85 - $2938.04 = $18,123.75

normally we pay our supplier about $3.20 at the most for Chevron Supreme, so needless to say, we saved A LOT.

Now that's the thing that gets me. Not that I was ever in the market personally, but every time I came across barrels and large amounts of oil that was obviously for oil change places, it was usually more or occasionally, equal to what I pay for my own oil, on a per quart basis. I always wondered about that....

I once contacted the local Mobil distributor for wholesale prices, thinking I could buy larger quantities and see savings. Plus they delivered free if the order was over a certain gallon amount. Turns out their price on Mobil 1 oil was higher than what I would pay at the local O'Reillys. I can only imagine the local stores negotiate prices with the distributor.

I used to see Mobil stations rolling out cases of Mobil 1 from Costco. I asked the guy one time why he was getting it here. He said it was cheaper than his distributor.

Perhaps the economics of this is that Costco & Walmart are selling more oil than those distributors, and can pass the savings on to us?
