AOCUSA/AMALIE announced an across the board price increase for all oil and automotive chemical products, as well as all private labeled products. The increase will move all of its oil prices up by $0.32 a gallon effective February 13, 2020. The price for the company’s grease products and automotive chemicals will increase by $0.04 a pound on the same day. There will, however, be no increase for antifreeze and brake fluid products.
Amalie attributes the need for the increase to the higher cost of additives, base oils, corrugated and transportation it has absorbed over the last few months.
