I was at a local dealership looking at a new car. They said they are running out of cars. Normally they have 700 on lot at all times. They are down to 200. But they sell 400+ month. They are really worried because of shortages. I’ve also noticed many Truckmounts are out 6 months. Anything you’ve noticed also?

We went to buy a car stereo at Best Buy and they had literally only 3 in stock and didn’t know when they would get more in. The HVAC industry also is short in copper and coils.

Considering a new TM and van and I'm dreading the wait times. Local lots are at MOST 50% capacity.

My dad's work can't even meet orders because they use steel faster than they can get it, both from the US and Canada.

My wifes co-worker bought a dodge truck in February and had to trade it in because they are having a baby. They got 10K more than what they paid for it. Crazy.

I read an article the other day, that a guy bought a used 2021 ford f150 platinum with 8k miles and paid more than a new one stickered for. Dealer told him thats just the way it is take it or leave it. Crazy times were living in right now gentlemen.

There are a large number of products in the commercial cleaning industry with shortages, even sh. It's not surprising when the economy was partially shut down for so long, it just creates a bigger demand when re-opening.
