Many experts have said that if people would’ve stayed in their normal routine, filling up only when needed, gas stations would not have run out. But, because of the scenes from Katrina, once the word got out there was a shortage. Everyone “topped off” their tanks at any opportunity.
It is the same with food and other supplies. If you recall, toilet paper went crazy out of stock right at the beginning of the recent Pandemic. From research, it was never about real shortage but more about panic. Once it got on social media that stores were running low, everyone had to “top-off”. It was more of an obsession than reality (read more HERE). But that does not mean it wasn’t real.
So, what will be the next supply item in shortage. We all believe the supply chain for food and other essentials is robust. But, one disruption and the right social media viralness and we are out of everything. What would be the first thing you would store just in case? HERE is an article that presents many ideas.
