At the end of June 2022, we published a post that said in part, “If we were suddenly unable to use our diesel vehicles, our supply chains would collapse, and we would no longer have a functioning economy.”
Per my colleague Warner Todd Huston, we learned the threat discussed in June is close to happening:
If you think things are bad now, Joe Biden’s economy is about to get many times worse as the diesel fuel shortage is on the verge of shutting down the U.S. economy.
Diesel fuel is what this country runs on. Without trucks over the road, we don’t get our food, goods, and business supplies. Our entire country would screech to a halt if we suddenly had no diesel fuel.
And that is just where we have headed, thanks to Joe Biden’s disastrous presidency.
According to Just the News:
A fuel supply and logistics company is warning about diesel shortages across the Southeast United States, issuing an alert about “rapidly devolving” conditions in North Carolina and six other states.
Mansfield moved to “Alert Level 4” to address market volatility, and “Code Red” in the Southeast, which means the company is now requesting 72 hour notice for deliveries when possible “to ensure fuel and freight can be secured at economical levels.”
The company likened current conditions for diesel to May, when prices rose by $1 per gallon as supply dried up throughout the southeast.
“Poor pipeline shipping economics and historically low diesel inventories are combining to cause shortages in various markets throughout the Southeast,” according to the alert. “These have been occurring sporadically, with areas like Tennessee seeing particularly acute challenges.”
“At times, carriers are having to visit multiple terminals to find supply, which delays deliveries and strains local trucking capacity,” the alert read.
Biden really is the worst president in modern American history.
