Dude, I posted my personal opinion, and to be honest I could care less if you live or die not to mention what oil you use. The prices at the Wal-Mart you choose to frequent are not the same as they are everywhere else. I purchase my Amsoil for a local dealer, and yes it is $0.10 more expensive than Mobil 1 ($4.90 per US Quart at Wal-Mart for Mobil 1 and $5.00 per US Quart for Amsoil XL7500 via a local dealer). Since you chose to bring intelligence into the subject, you just showed a good indicator of yours by flaming me. I posted my opinions and observations, nothing more. Either your intelligence is below average, or you are a extremely insecure individual.
