The ominous news keeps piling up and it spells trouble.
That's is a nice way to go into the colder months. Worth noting, the story comes from USA Today, an establishment propaganda organ so it isn't just some "conspiracy" site.

The squeeze is coming. The breakfast meals at the local greasy spoon where we occasionally eat has had significant increases in their menu prices, like 20% or more, and we are talking eggs and potatoes. Expect much higher prices and shortages in key staples.
Gas here locally hit $3.39 yesterday, which is the highest I can remember for a very long time. We are threatening to get into Obama-era money and breaking through the $4/gallon barrier.

The extremes on both sides want it to happen, I guess we will discover which side was correct.
