Base Oil Price Report


The U.S. base oil market is quiet this week, partly because many buyers and sellers are attending the National Petrochemical and Refiners Association’s National Lubricants and Waxes meeting in Houston. There were no changes during the past week in base oil postings, although crude oil costs continued to drop. Crude fell 4 cents on the New York Mercantile Exchange yesterday to close at $25.90 per barrel.

Historic U.S. posted base oil prices and WTI and Brent crude spot prices are available for purchase in Excel format.
