Inflation / Shortages in Salida: gas, food, baby formula

I bought a new set of tires yesterday and I asked the store manager about the tire shortage. He said that normally the manufacturers ship snow tires to the States in the beginning of October. This year they didn’t arrive until the middle of December. Two and half months late.

He’s still having problems getting truck tires. He has a handful of customers waiting for tires.

He had two suppliers for the tires I bought. His primary supplier did not have the tires, but the secondary did. Lucky me.
