Everybody at home because of covid19, got more time to change oil I guess. Might be a shortage of oil supply all together. Why do you need oil?? I mailed you quite a bit lol lol

My guess is they probably have some bulk rollback buyers who bought a lot at a good price.

Shelves are bare basically overall at my local Wal Mart since early/middle March. Funny thing -- oil section is packed.

I heard rumors from a worker at a different store that a lot of shipments are out of whack due to emphasizing the goods in short supply. They said they never know what's going to be on the next truck whereas they used to know TP came on Wednesday, lemonade on Thursday, DVDs on Friday, or whatever.

The way I interpreted this was "fill the semis with toilet paper, there's little demand for motor oil."

The Walmarts around me are very low on oil, the sporting goods section is getting bare bones too. Shooting and fishing gear shelves are almost empty.

I've seen many empty spaces on shelves in all departments in several WalMarts around here.

In Southern Illinois the 2 Walmarts I go to are full on oil.

I'm sure the bulk of oil jugs at Walmart were made in China

Was in WM last weekend buying their closeout of 0w16. Plenty to be seen.

People aren't driving, so don't need oil. WM tries to run out of "seasonal" stuff early so they don't have to clearance it.

This would be the time when a several hundred quart stash is worth its presence. Same as TP, MREs, etc.

I've noticed the empty oil shelves too. I think it's because the suppliers want to introduce API SP in large quantity rather than trickle in.

I'm thinking the stores or the fulfillment centers that serves the stores are allotted a certain amount per XX number of days and if it sells out, Walmart cant get anymore until the supplier ships it to the fulfillment center.

There is only so much manufacturing capacity. Example: My brother is a Walmart pharmacist and says they cant keep bikes in stock and Walmart can only get so many of them from the bicycle companies.
