Effective August 1, 2008, the State of Maine began charging distributors fees on sales of bulk oil in Maine. This fee is passed on to us by our distributor. We are therefore charging a $1.40 fee per oil change for this cost. This law replaced a prior law requiring a $1.00 fee per oil change to be charged at the retail level. The revenue from both laws is to be used to clean up old waste oil sites.
