Lubes in the News

Oil change companies (and topics) making headlines this week:

• Christian Science Monitor compares a DIY and DIFM oil change — and makes several serious errors (like saying lube shops charge $30 for an oil change and an extra $20 for the oil filter!).

• New York Valvoline Instant Oil Change becomes…a pizza place!?

• West Coast Jiffy Lube franchisee offers free maintenance inspections in September and October. More here.

• Pennsylvania lube operator displays Joe Namath’s former car at his shop.

• Lube employee lands a big catch.

• EZ Lube offers back-to-school car care tips.

• Missouri Jiffy Lube closes its doors.

• Oil Can Henry’s donates $92,000 to breast cancer research. (And a hearty “Kudos” to them for doing so!)
