Ice Age Farmer posted: "As retailers reinstate purchase limits and the mainstream media warns viewers to "stock up now," a supposedly grassroots trucker strike threatens to marry a demand shock with a supply interruption, putting our supply chain under tremendous stress and promising shortages in the days ahead.

"In Brazil's 2018 trucker strike, food prices skyrocketed, fuel shortages grounded flights, and 68 million chickens were culled without feed."
