Mobil 1 is scarce all over the place. According to the website, they are low due to the hurricane that hit the Texas coast a couple of months ago.

Eddie....................5w30 is recommended, and is better in the winter especially. the 10w30 is a bit better for the summertime. 10w30 will work, but mileage may not be as good as it will be with the 5w30.

It used to be worth the membership, just for the gas. But in the last year or so they seem to be about the same price as everyone else. A great place to buy tires! Well worth it!
