*bump*

I keep hearing that we could have product shortages due to the pipeline disruption we just had (Colonial Pipeline). In addition, businesses everywhere are scrambling to hire workers--so I imagine some product will not make it to the shelves as quickly as we're accustomed to. 

Anyway, I'll keep an eye on grocery store shelves when I'm out and see if anything is running out.

Well, here we are again. Like early 2020 all over again. 

Costco will start putting limits on some of their goods. Say hello to Toilet Papergeddon 2.0.  🤼‍♂️ 🧻 🤺

"China's power curbs worsened over the weekend when top suppliers for Apple and Tesla halted production at some manufacturing plants due to Beijing's tighter energy consumption policy, according to Nikkei sources."

There are big holes in the toilet paper aisle at my local Publix. Rut-roh. It’s not as bad as THIS, but in the next few months…..

@giovanni weird.  I saw this and checked local fuel prices. $2.70 gallon. We're seeing no impact yet.
