    That is probably because the labor shortage is affecting not just transportation - especially the visible final-mile transport - but also production facilities.

    FL Panhandle. I see shortages in certain products. There must be issues in certain areas or different supply chains. Still having problems staying stocked with cat food. Garlic powder is like gold dust. I spied some on the top shelf where the little old ladies couldn't reach. Potatoes were short this week. OM Smoked Sausage was out a few weeks ago but is back. No Red Diamond tea for two weeks now. Zapps Voodoo chips no longer available. We were getting banana cakes weekly, but none of that for the last 3 months. 90% alcohol was finally back on the shelf last week. Both vitamin D and zinc are now available too. Biggest shortage I see is frozen dinners. If I find one I like, good luck finding that variety ever again. Seems like they can't keep them in stock.

    I hope so.

    from the early 70s, I experienced the fall of Colorado.
    from 1999, I was amid the downfall of Az.
    I come home to Texas to see the onslaught begin here.

    I wonder if I'm witnessing a current version of Goliad massacre or the Alamo.

    I'm old enough that I'll probably not witness the outcome of today's political showdown... but it has me wonderin'.

    Next year will be a truly fucked up year, with soaring prices (hyper inflation), shortages of nearly everything, and let's not get started on utilities.

    I usually grocery shop at a local WalMart and they've had noticeble gaps on their shelves since last spring. Some items have become relatively rare. The supply chain damage that is being done is going to make things worse and so will the inflation. These crazy SOBs keep shoving trillions into the economy we're going to resemble Weimar Germany. AND THEY KNOW IT.

    We usually rent a vehicle and take a trip to see our daughter, about once per year. The last time I priced one it was DOUBLE what we'd paid less than a year earlier.

Just curious if this is a localized thing or are we really starting to feel a pinch with this insane administration.

    I'm not sure our stores have ever had the same stock levels they did pre-COVID but only minor shortsages here. No canned chicken the other day for example

    Bread shelves seems to be hard to keep stocked in the local Wally World.Don't know if it is a shortage or just high demand...

    Just an observation. You would think Wal Mart would have a huge selection of products such as bread but it seems they are limited on choices these days.

    I like sandwich thins made by Arnold bakery.They used to carry them but not anymore.

    In January 2021, Bill Gates became the largest owner of farmland in America, now owning over 242,000 acres of farmland!


    https://landreport.com/2021/01/bill-...armland-owner/


    Although the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has no ties whatsoever to Cascade or its investments, it also has a farmland initiative: Gates Ag One, which has established its headquarters in the Greater St. Louis area. According to the St. Louis Business Journal, Gates Ag One will focus on research that helps “smallholder farmers adapt to climate change and make food production in low- and middle-income countries more productive, resilient, and sustainable.”




    {Here is another probable disruption of supply. Bill Gates, carbon credits, no more real beef, veggies burgers.....It's coming people.}
