According to the logistics company Freight-waves, major trucking fleets located throughout the eastern half of the United States are now making preparations for a "imminent" fuel shortage.
According to Craig Fuller, founder and CEO of Freight-waves, "3 very significant fleets" are making preparations for the possibility that diesel pumps at gasoline stations could run empty. These fleets' drivers have been notified about the potential for fuel shortages in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast areas in the coming weeks. These shortages are expected to affect both regions.
Fuller shared on Twitter a number of texts that had been sent to drivers by fleet companies. The alerts raised serious concerns.
He also tweeted what appears to be an unnamed industry insider explaining that the historic mess that is affecting markets in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast is a combination of crude being diverted from the United States to Europe and supply chains issues along the East Coast. This explanation was included in one of his tweets.
The invasion of Ukraine has thrown energy markets into disarray, and as a response, Western nations have imposed sanctions. As a result, diesel supplies are running low throughout the globe. For some months, it has been obvious that there would soon be shortages, as was covered in the following articles:
The global shortage of diesel fuel raises the risk of an even greater increase in oil prices.
According to the world's largest energy traders, a catastrophic scenario for diesel is emerging that would result in gas stations running out of fuel. "D-Day Approaches: As the diesel market prepares for a historic shock, the crack spread continues to soar.
Diesel stockpiles on the East Coast of the United States have hit a record low as a potential fuel crisis looms. Widespread diesel shortages in the United States have sent crack spreads to mind-boggling highs.
The Department of Energy (DOE) released data on Wednesday indicating that diesel stockpiles in the United States are now 23 percent below the five-year average for this time of year, reaching their lowest level since May 2005.
The problem is not getting better despite the fact that fuel prices at the pump have reached all-time highs.
The price of gasoline at the pump is likewise becoming steadily higher.
And who does Satan Soldier Biden this time for any shortages in the supply of fuel? We can't keep pointing the finger at Putin for every issue.
A side note: Ignore what's hiding under that curtain about the Bidenflation!
Even though food is being rationed, Satan Soldier Joe Biden, of the United States, tweeted on Wednesday that grocery shelves are filled to capacity throughout the nation. "Families can rest easy today," Joe Biden said, in response to fears raised a few weeks ago that there might not be sufficient food available for Thanksgiving celebrations. The president said, "There is plenty of turkey and everything else you could possibly need at the grocery shops." In the meanwhile, Publix Supermarkets, a grocery store chain founded at Florida, issued a warning to its customers this week that they should anticipate food shortages in all 1,280 of its shops located throughout the southeast. The following items, as reported by the Orlando Sentinel, are included on the list of foods that are subject to rationing: Cranberry sauce that's been canned Gravy stored in jars Pie filling that's been canned. Canola oil in addition to vegetable oil whipped cream cheese Bacon Sausages rolled up for breakfast Napkins made of paper Plates, cups, and silverware made of disposable material Tissue for bathing Cold snacks and energy drinks are available. Juices of the aseptic kind.
Because to bideflation, consumers have less discretionary income and hence are unable to make large purchases, which explains why store shelves are loaded to capacity.
Think about it some more. Every single action taken by the administration of Xiden has been incorrect. There is not a single exception. As a result of the release of oil from strategic oil reserves (at which time Russia and China threatened World War III), the price of gasoline increased by $2.00 per barrel in a matter of hours. That whole case of dementia When Joe reads with his sharp eyes, he finds that everything Raggedy Ann says is completely false. They were unable to confirm that it is Thursday today.

Our Food Has Been UTILIZED As A WEAPON
SRH: The Biden administration attempted to counter rising food inflation for the working poor by announcing an increase in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, to more than 40 million beneficiaries in August. This means the average monthly benefit increased more than $36 per person, but even that has failed to satisfy the stomachs of millions of hangry Americans.
There's also another problem. Bryan Nichols, vice president of sales for Transnational Foods, which delivers to 100 food banks associated with Feeding America, said sourcing canned food from Asia has become more complex as shortages due to port congestion have materialized. He also said importing canned food from overseas has become incredibly expensive because shipping containers rates have gone from "$4,000 to $18,000" in less than a year.
In Southern Colorado, Care and Share Food Bank's CEO Lynne Telford explains the cost of food products is going through the roof.
Telford said, "the cost for a truckload of peanut butter —40,000 pounds has soared 80% from June 2019 to $51,000 in August. Mac and cheese is up 19% from a year ago, and the wholesale cost of ground beef has increased 5% in three months."
She said her organization is spending more money to make up for the lack of donations, and her other fear is that there won't be enough food for the holidays.
"The other thing is that we're not getting enough holiday food, like stuffing and cranberry sauce. So we have to supplement with other kinds of food, which you know, makes us sad," said Telford, whose food bank fed more than 200,000 people last year.
The data from food banks underscores what many poor working Americans already know. Some of the highest inflation in decades is crushing their budgets as they can barely afford to survive. Such pain in the wallet is making them hungry, coming off a demoralizing pandemic, threatening Biden and the Democrats ahead of midterms next year.
