I have a major vent too. I go to the store about 2x a month because of where I live. I went today and was dumbfounded. Somebody had cleaned out the bread aisle, toilet paper, and hand sanitizer (HS). I won't say the name of the store, but you talk about price gouging! I know the prices of stuff I buy normally. There was nothing I buy on sale and everything was jacked up! lightbulbs 28 bucks, normally $9. It reminded me of a store before a major hurricane was coming elsewhere. Are others seeing price gouging? I think it is illegal. In a 5-6 hour radius, I think we have 7 stores. That is not counting very small general stores, but 4 of the 7 stores are not big. A friend called me and asked me to look for HS while I was at that store. That is why I know there was none. People need to keep a reasonable stash of items they use on hand. They could save a ton of $$$ like in times like this and wouldn't have to not have certain items. I'm thankful I have yeast and flour. I'll just use the bread maker. What kind of person or people go out and buy ALL of the bread? After I called a relative, they told me 1 of the stores was limiting the amount of certain items 1 could buy. They still did not have a lot of things there including produce. ( Like that is going to last if people over bought....) I guess it is a wake up call to people to buy when prices are low and supplies are plentiful. If this keeps up, I am not going back to the store for a long time. Frozen veggies and fruit will just be the norm.
