Even the mainstream media is picking up on how bad things could get if diesel prices continue to rise. If they get over $7 per gallon, you can realistically expect the masses to react by rioting over the cost of food and other goods.
Truck drivers are already feeling the pain at the pump, and if it gets out of control, the flow of goods, such as food, will stop. Most Americans are not prepared for this to be a reality. With the food supply already destroyed and at the precipice of collapse, feeding your family is going to get harder and more expensive.
Data collected by the Associated Press shows that the price of diesel is roughly 70 percent higher than this time last year. According to AAA, the national average price is now $5.65 per gallon.
Many truck companies say they cannot keep absorbing these costs. That will ultimately be reflected in the prices that the consumer pays and that’s part of the increase in the cost of food. -Fox News 34 Orlando
Diesel shortages and the finite economic law of supply and demand are pushing the prices to record levels. The mainstream media, while admitting the prices are going higher, still places all of the blame of the Russian “invasion” of Ukraine.
The only thing we can do is limit our reliance on the food supply chain as much as possible. Grow what you can. Learn to live with a little less, and stockpile foods that won’t go bad.
Being as self-sufficient as possible is the best chance anyone has to beat the destroyed food supply chain.
Take whatever steps you can now, even if they are small. They will all pay off in the long run.
