As of today 4/21/21 we don't have much for shortages here in Western Montana except for ammunition and lumber. Locally the former is hard to find at any price while the latter is available to a degree albeit at much higher prices.

Retail and grocery items are mostly full with some shortages in limited areas. (
A new bike is hard to find.)

Shout (the spray bottle version) and, amazingly, hiking boots. I can find tactical boots and work boots, but no hiking boots.

umm
A bit short on education. I don't really understand the "shortage" warning that is circulating these days in many videos and websites. Even Survival Lilly , who lives in Europe, I think, was talking about probable shortages.

So, somebody please educate me, what's going on ?

There are several problems. Not enough farmers are getting the water they need due to the severe drought in the western United States. Ranchers are not getting enough feed they need because of the problem mentioned above. Moreover, what does exist is not moving because the number of truck drivers retiring exceeds the number of new hires.

Thanks Jeanette

I wonder if the Covid-19 has anything to do with the truckers problem ?

I hope it remains that way, but still we should be cautious and have something for rough times. Hope for the best, and prep for the worst.

I've observed that the number of retirees is more significant than those newly recruited for some time. Has that problem suddenly gotten worse due to the current economic environment, or has that problem been brought to light more so than usual? That I don't know.

We have a shortage of hospital beds and medical staff where I am. COVID is overwhelming the local hospitals.

This is not just something you hear about in the news that somehow doesn't have a real impact on you. A few weeks ago I took someone to the emergency room. They didn't have a bed for him and, after spending a miserable night on a gurney? stretcher? he decided to go home on his own, even though he could have used a hospital stay. He also said it was clear they didn't have enough people working there to help him.

So, guys, don't get into a car accident or have a heart attack.
