Lubes in the News

Back from surprisingly cold Las Vegas with oil change companies making headlines this week:

• Heartland Auto continues its buying spree, this time acquiring a fellow Jiffy Lube franchisee in New York.

• More fallout lawsuits resulting from EZ Lube’s bankruptcy.

• California Jiffy Lube operator pays $130K for environmental violations. More here.

• On the opposite spectrum, Lube Stop receives another environmental award.

• How the Pep Boys “29-minute oil change” actually takes 90 minutes or more.

• Profiling a new Kwik Kar Lube & Auto Center (in the home town of NOLN world headquarters, to boot).

(This post written while listening to “Live and Let Die” by Guns N’ Roses; not quite as good as the original Wings version, IMHO.)
