Remember all those old-school preppers? The media used to refer to them as "extreme" and even called them "tin-foil hat conspiracy" folks, but during the shutdowns, those folks were right, and the mainstream media got it wrong.
The next shortage underway is eggs. Readers have seen our notes on supermarkets nationwide running out of eggs. The egg shortage is so severe that last week the US Customs and Border Protection reported that egg smuggling from Mexico erupted.
And why is that? Well, a dozen Grade A eggs in the US have topped $4.25 at supermarkets. In Mexico, a 30 count of eggs is about $3.40.
US egg prices have topped the national average gasoline per gallon price at the pump.
As a result of the egg crisis, internet search trends on Google show Americans are panic searching where to find egg-laying hens for their backyard.
The search trend "where to buy chickens near me" erupted to a near multi-decade high.
