Expect to See Shortages of These 13 Items at Stores in Minnesota and Throughout the United States

One of the freakiest times in my life was when I walked into a grocery store in Minnesota back in April 2020.  I thought I was in a Marvel movie and Thanos came and not only took all the people but also took all of the bread, meat, cereal, eggs, milk, toilet paper, and anything canned other than lima beans...wait, there was one can of those.

I know you remember that moment in our lives.  Thankfully, we have toilet paper now but unfortunately, we are seeing prices soar on store shelves and it is anticipated that more shortages are coming in 2023 throughout the U.S.

What NOT To Do After Seeing The List of Items Experiencing Shortages in 2023

I remember when people were stockpiling toilet paper at their homes.  Admit it, you had way more than you needed.  My family said that I was "part of the problem" but the truth is, I had multiple packages because Target had one of those deals where if you spent so much, you got a gift card.  It was like they were asking me to hoard toilet paper, so I did.  I made that visit just before our world shut down though...but did take advantage of that sale thanks to a friend tipping me off that Washington stores were out of toilet paper.  I never thought that would happen here, but then again, maybe stores shouldn't have had incentives at the same time to buy more.  I made $20 that day!

If stores don't pay us to buy more of the items experiencing shortages and WE don't wipe shelves clean and start stockpiling, we will be ok.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
