    That's cheaper than I'm paying, I put 40 dollars in my gas tank at $3.92 a gallon for mid-grade fuel...Unbelievable, it's going to cost me close to a hundred dollars a week just to go to work and back...

    'Skimpflation' is here: Longer waits, fewer options and bare-bones customer support hide the true price of inflation as businesses slash services in response to rising costs and labor shortage

    [​IMG]

    Americans are already fed up with soaring inflation, but the problem is even worse than official statistics describe due to a sneaky phenomenon dubbed 'skimpflation.' Coined on a recent episode of NPR's Planet Money podcast, skimpflation refers to a cutback in services as businesses struggle to cope with a labor shortage and rising material costs. While it is related to 'shrinkflation', which refers to stealthy reductions in package sizes, the services cutbacks of skimpflation are an even bigger headache for consumers, causing longer waits, fewer options and a general increase in daily inconveniences.

    I went to the grocery store this morning and so many empty shelves, more than I've seen in this sleepy small rural town...

    All cat food and most of the dog food gone...No bottled water, no bread, cereal isle is half empty, the list goes on...

    Yesterday we got our Thanksgiving meal. We expect up to 9 ppl. I am glad I reserved our turkey. The coolers were empty. The store was moderate stocked. And the cost. $235.00

    We were contemplating buying an additional car. I did internet searches on every car dealership in the local area. There are virtually no new cars to be had. The used cars that are available have high mileage (100k) on them. We decided to way until 2022 to see how the market shapes up.

    We have noticed the lack of certain products or the increase in the cost of grocery items. I enjoy apple cider when it becomes available in September and October. The cost of a gallon of local cider…. $8.00! I can buy a lot of sugar drinks for that price.

    Toilet paper was almost sold out at our local WalMart. I hate to be the person buying up T Paper but you have to stock up when you see it available.

    Buying cat food has become a chore as well. Luckily our cat only eats dry food. My wife said that the shelves were empty of canned wet food at the grocery store we shop at. WalMart had three total cans on the shelf.

    If this is some diabolical scheme to bring the world to a screeching halt, it seems to be working.
