The ARGUS USGC Group III domestic price assessments

Argus was the first PRA to launch domestic Group III price assessments as stricter lubricant specifications boosted demand for the premium-grade base oil and the need for a price to benchmark the product off. Demand for Group III base oils in the US has risen steadily over the years. However, the US has no significant domestic Group III production, so relies on Group III base oil imports from producers around the world.
