I went shopping for food at Costco recently and the prices for everything hdd sad d increased by 10-15% for everything so my bill at the check out was significantly higher then just few weeks ago:(
Everyone is confused as to what they need to do. They were told it was no big deal for so long and within two weeks they are told something different and shelter in place is coming soon.
One day it isn't a big deal, the next day it is a huge deal and the week after that they're threatened with shelter in place.
Panic buying is a response to the indecisiveness of leaders. While they argue stimulus packages and point blame at one another, we are left to try and guess what they will enforce next. Will it be a shelter in place or a mass quarantine? How about all the Americans in the middle of buying a home and moving? Will we be shut down? Will truckers have to quit their deliveries due to rest stops closing and no options for food or rest ? If truckers have to stop then our supplies stop.
If our supplies stop than the vast majority of us die and those that pillage and riot remain.
So what do we do? What is our government going to do? We have zero guidance right now. They're too busy arguing over the right way to do things, so they do nothing.
I live in Saudi Arabia. The only thing the stores here are short on here is hand sanitizer. And that’s still available, but probably not the brand you like.
I live in the country and own the acres behind our house they stay full of deer and hogs plus the river is less than a mile and i have fishing poles. I am not panicked.
My Clone Did it Not me
I'm not worried I'm doing a small hydroponic rail system to try it out and if
works out well this summer for growing veggies. I will be doing a larger one
for winter and be growing year-round.
A hobby I have always wanted to try.

Once McDonald's runs out of french fries. The real crisis will sink in!
There is a shortage of bathrooms with the fast food place going to a drive through only.
Many stores have begun instituting limits on certain item, unfortunately it is late because it will take a while for the supply chain to catch up so that even with limits the shelves for certain items may never catch up.
I was at Kroger this AM and their only areas which were depleted were the paper goods and of all things the Frozen Pizza and Ice cream isle. We have had the Kids out of school for over two weeks now and the parents are apparently trying to fatten them up .,
More food bought at local stores and less food bought at restaurants. It will not cause inflation. It will likely cause saving bc we are not overpaying for food now.
Any excuse to raise prices!
When oil/fuel prices went up, so did everything related to trucking including food.
When oil/fuel prices finally came back down, NONE of the inflated prices did!?!
Meh, I was at my local grocery, an East coast chain, today and it looked like it did 6 months ago with the exception of TP, clorox and lysol wipes and hand sanitizer. You can make your own surface sanitizer with bleach and water in a spray bottle, soap is the best way to clean your hands and body and protect yourself from the virus. Aaaaand, if you can't find toilet paper you can find baby wipes just about everywhere, even on Amazon.
