Stop, just stop spreading all this ridiculous fake news intended to continue the "Panic". People are so gullible.....


.
Didn't mean to induce any panic. This was forwarded to me by a buddy of mine who runs a auto repair shop. He had to switch vendors who supplied 5W20 oil due to them not being able to source that weight. They go through approximately 600 gallons a week of that weight.

I am down to 2 gallons of DEF, i think i should buy another jug.

I am down to 10 rolls of TP, need to buy another pack of 24

7 1/2 Quarts of eco-diesel oil, an oil filter, a gas filter

all will get me through to June 2023

No Crude Oil, would keep airplanes on the ground
would keep ships at the Pier
would keep semi trucks parked
would make everybody stay home
would stop the power companies drop production by 80%
would cut off the supply of Kerosene, propane, etc.
Would cut off all the Plastic production, how many things in your home or business is made of plastic

bbb has nothing to do with global supply chain gridlock. Pandemic + greedy executives with their stupid just-in-time supply chain (invented by Jack Welch of GE to squeeze every penny out of vendors) is. I lived this dream for 40 years.

Welch's stupidity was short term bucks and hanging successors when the inevitable world disruptions occurred. Let's stop with the ideologue politics.

There is no “shortage”. USA diesel export is higher than ever.

Yep - product goes to the highest bidder. The loss of crude from Russia (Ukraine war), U.S. (oil company execs refuse to pump more), OPEC (Saudis refuse to pump more), Iran and Venezuela sanctions continuing, and U.S. refinery shutdowns (permanently) at start of global pandemic caused this. Not some dumb national policy.

I'm not saying all diesel oil is hard to get, but just wanted to respond that there is no problem in getting oil.

I personally, just yesterday, went to order 3 gallons of T6 5w40 for my 3500. Looked at a lot site's, only found a small amount, and no way I would pay the price wanted.

So this morning I looked at Walmart sites, no T6 at any stores or on line.

I drove to my favorite auto store and was told no T6, actually knew no one in the area that had any. Said been 2-3 months since had any.


Had shelves of T4, T5, but no T6.

I called around and found 1 place that had 3 gallons left, when I went to get it I was told they could get very little and not often, and I was lucky.

Sounds like I should stock up on it even though I don't have a diesel.
