How much should semi synthetic blend oil change cost?

Here in Northern New England at the local "Oil and Go" today (January 2011) I saw the price for a synthetic blend oil change to be 64.95 plus tax. The price for a full synthetic oil change was 79.95. The price for a regular oil change was 34.95. I have not priced quarts of semi-synthetic oils at Walmart lately, but I can say the price of 64.95 is excessive when for 15 dollars more you can get a full synthetic oil change. It may very well be that today's semi-synthetic oil sells for 82 percent of the price of full synthetic, but I seriously doubt that. Rather I suspect the 35 dollar price of a regular oil change is to get people in the door, so they can be up-sold to an overpriced semi-synthetic blend oil change. After all, there isn't much money to be made in basic oil changes, unless your doing an awful lot of them. So keep in mind that when these folks checking your windshield wipers and air filters, it isn't because they are concerned about your safety or gas mileage. No, they want to sell you more stuff (stuff with a much higher profit margin than your basic oil change).
