Is this supply chain disruption a west coast thing? I live in the southeast and haven't seen the slightest indication of this at all. Shelves at my local stores are stocked as normal. Haven't noticed prices going up on anything over the past year either, though that could be due to lack of attention on my part. Toilet paper was gone because of panic-buying last spring, but that's the only disruption I've observed.
I'm guessing the jam in California ports is causing problems getting stuff into the west coast but I assume shipping to the east coast is proceeding as normal. Or I'm just really fortunate to live somewhere that is shielded somehow or another from much of the insanity gripping the world right now.
No. Seems to be an East Coast thing as well. I'm also seeing it in a number of MidWest cities like Columbus, Ohio. I was traveling last week, and I-70 (the main East-West Highway) which is normally full of semis in the evening was almost completely dark while traveling. What you usually expect if you're driving between 8PM and Midnight is to be dodging groups of semis the entire time. On this trip they were rare and I'd only see small groups coming in the other direction every few minutes. Normally busy truck stops were mostly empty.
It's also noticeable for online orders.
