    Northern VA. 75 percent of gas stations no gas or diesel. No Ammo except for occassional shotgun shells. Couple of gun shops price gouging 9mm for 1.50 /round. It's a circus...more than normal.

    John,
    I saw this thread referenced in the newsletter that just came out.
    Not sure if it will add anything but I can chime in.
    Here in the Fort Worth area gas is still plentiful. No shortages just rising prices.
    Ammo is still hard to come by, although we are starting to see more shotgun ammo. Prices are still ridiculous. An ostentatious display of wealth around here is driving around with a box of 9mm in a truck with two sheets of plywood

    Did the Left Just Win a Gun Battle?

    An article I published at Medium.com

    "Did the Left Just Win a Gun Battle?"

    Here in South Georgia and North Florida gas is mostly available without much trouble. Guns are relatively plentiful just not the ones you really want. Ammo, tho . . . expensive!

    Rumors of a gas shortage had a run at several stations in my area (Hernando County, FL) on the west coast, but I was able to get gas at my neighborhood station without any interruptions in service.

    The ammo shortage is widespread, and has been for months, unless youíre willing to pay the high online prices. Fortunately, Iíve always bought plenty of factory ammo and reloading components during the ďgood times;Ē so Iím personally in good shape, and donít intend to buy any until prices return to normal. How long thatíll take is totally dependent on how long people continue to buy and hoard ammo at those inflated prices.

    When people stop buying at those prices; supply will be able to catch up with demand, and prices will return to normal.
