This February Brought Lubricant Price Increases for all Major Oil Manufacturers.
What is going on?
This month we’ve seen price increases on lubricating oils, coolants/antifreezes and greases. These increases in price, as is often the case, are a result of the heightened cost of raw materials that impact the manufacturing, processing and delivery of these essential products.
A lubricant price increase is directly tied to the economy as a whole and can be influenced by many external factors. The cost of these raw materials can be impacted by such things as a glut of supply, a hike in demand, the impact of global natural disasters that may influence production or shipping the products and political unrest in other countries.
What we’re doing!
As we are all very aware, there is no real escape from these increased prices since these products are a necessity to the wellbeing of your vehicle. However, at Griffin Motorwerke, we assure you that we will do everything in our power to help offset these heightened costs elsewhere in the services and repairs of your vehicles.
