First, it was a toilet paper shortage. Now as the pandemic continues after a year — there are new shortages stacking up. So far this spring, the U.S. is running short on chlorine tablets for swimming pools. Experts say that’s because of a higher demand for pools and a large fire at a Louisiana chlorine production facility. Lumber is also in hot demand as people continue “do it yourself” projects at home. The National Association of Home Builders reported that lumber prices are up about 250% since last April. Other items reportedly running low across the country: pet food, chicken wings, and chips for new cars. Have you run into any of these shortages?
