Default Oil Question

I realize this may spark huge debate, but my car is about to turn over 100,000kms and I've been reading a lot about oil recently. I want to know what locals are using.

I've realized the Mobil 1 I've been using is basically crap (HTHS of 3.1 for 5W30) I've read great things about Redline and would love to use it but it seems retarded expensive and hard to find. I also read that a lot of people are running Rotella T6 but because it only comes 5w40 it results in higher than ideal oil pressures.

Is anyone using an economical synthetic oil available locally or at least in US big box stores that has HTHS numbers closer to the 3.8 of Redline in 5W30?
