No. The price has gone up.

We're not allowed to discuss the end of the world as we know it scenarios, but we're in one now.

As in burgers for people. There are plenty of recipes out there. Many are a little heavy on vegetables.

The biggest thing I am seeing is that shipping from China (and Asia) is taking MUCH longer than before - 3 months on some items. Shop early.

Here in the UK we have a significant petrol panic.
Long queues, arguments, and calls for the TPTB to do something.

Caused by a shortage of tanker drivers to deliver fuel to filling stations. The initial shortages were minor but have worsened due to panic buying.

Some foodstuffs are in short supply or even completely unavailable, but there IS NO general food shortage merely a reduction in choice.
Media pictures of multiple empty shelves look alarming, but can represent for example 20 types of bread out of stock, but another 8 types available.

Media seem to have a major part in perceived shortages. Showing empty shelves has an impact.
When some politicians in Germany started to tell on TV that there is enough for everyone provided that everyone bought only what they need, panic buying and hoarding started to pick up pace.
Some products vanished from the shelves due to conflicts between the manufacturer and the retailer. For the consumer the products just stopped being available.
We also had shelves with very limited choice in baker shops. The reason was simple: the employees where ordered to bake a limited portfolio and fewer items to avoid wasting unsold produce.
Maybe it´s time for a return to the national loaf and the Woulton pie.

Thanks for the report. I've been looking for first hand accounts, but since I don't do the Face Pages or twit, I'm out of the loop.

What's causing the driver shortage?

finding enough good drivers was already challenging and covid made it worse.

Where I am we have a shortage of moderation. People consume to excess. I see people throwing away perfectly good things all the time.

I'm posting not to "gloat." That would be really silly. Just to balance the perspective.
