So far I’m seeing shortages in the following items:

lumber
Steel
Concrete
Ford trucks
Appliances
Tires (Coker tire said 2 months to get my wide ovals)
Micro chips <— apparently this is what’s affecting Ford trucks
Guns & Ammo
Labor
Boats
Single family Homes
Gasoline as of yesterday with this pipeline issue

What else?

Consistent guidelines - Ralphs you have to bag your own if you bring the bags, Albertsons they will bag your groceries in to your bags.... Trader Joes will too...

Caffeine free diet coke - tied to the aluminum can shortage, not enough so Coke is focusing on the more popular normal Diet Coke
Non alcoholic beer - same as above, breweries focusing on normal beer since that is far more popular

I can still get steel...but fuck me it’s over .95 cents a pound now. These 60x120 sheets of 5/16 HRPO were around $600 a sheet. Paid .52 cents a pound in January.

The Suburban we ordered a couple of weeks ago is on hold due to the chip shortage.

I bought a 2016 Ram with 18k miles on it for around 35k in 2017. My brother in law told me over the weekend he found basically the exact same model as I have with a few more miles for around 40k. It's insane.

BMW offered to buy my wife's x5 back today when I dropped it off for service...I gave them the number I would take for it.. I know they weren't far off when we were chatting in the service lane..

My 2020 is booking for well and beyond what I paid for it...its stupid right now.

The one thing that I wish was in very short supply is "STUPID."

Those without turbans to clarify
Funny you say that, we were just talking about how many Indian truckers there are now when we were driving on the 40 waiting for the classic 20 min uphill pass maneuver to finish.

They all head to Punjabi Daba 😂 A lot of them are ex taxi cab drivers.
