Do you TAKE YOUR CAR TO THE LOCAL SHOP FOR OIL CHANGES?
I don't, but I might be considering it because its almost negative 11 degrees outside..
But here's the thing...by the time I buy the stuff and the filter, then factor in the time it takes to do the task, then compare it to the 20-30 bucks at the local shop, it's not really like saving me that much cash.
What are youse guyses thoughts?

find a place that you can trust as all is well. i know i couple of places in my area where i know some of the guys who work there and i know they will do what they say. i work at a dealer and still hate taking my car to one. so being able to trust a place is a big deal to me.

I dont do it, my driveway sucks major *** to work on cars. I trust my shop, plus I watch them do it to make sure they dont miss anything. I tried changing the oil in my Taurass in my driveway last summer, never again. Such a pain in my ***. Unless I can use a lift then I will pay the extra $3 to have someone else do it.
$5? You guys must have a really cheap shop. If I do it myself, I spend the same to put in Mobil 1 with a Mobil 1 filter as the shop would charge to put in whatever regular crap they use. Plus, I don't want them touching my car unless they have to, last time I had a shop change my oil, they overtightened the oil filter and it took me over an hour to work it off... eff that, I should be able to take it off by hand.
