My son, who is a Freshman at FCGU and has no experience with getting his oil changed just texted me and asked me if it's normal to pay $120 for an oil change. I, of course, said NO! But that is exactly what happened. This Jiffy Lube takes advantage of students who do not know any better and charges $120 for a regular oil change. DISGRACEFUL!
