Lubes in the News

Oil change companies making headlines this week:

• Tragically, a Nebraska shop’s assistant manager is gunned down. (Our condolences to Mr. Jackson’s family.) More here.

• Georgia shop splits a day’s profits among its employees as a bonus.

• Colorado operator honored with civic award.

• New Wisconsin law bans oil filters and oil absorbent material from landfills. More regulation, oh boy!

• Blogging about the Right to Repair Act’s chances of being passed by the 112th Congress. (Hint: They’re probably not great.) Hard to believe R2R is now in its 10th year on the Hill with little to show.

• New Jersey town still battling a lube/carwash operator’s attempt at erecting a wind turbine, even after a defeat in court.

    Just wondering if anyone else has noticed that it appears that many Wal Mart centers are now labeled "tire and lube" – and not tire and lube express?
