Maybe I'm just old and grumpy, but I've lived through various "Shortages" of many things and ALWAYS seen the price go right through the roof, for a while until the frenzy wears itself out and then a slow return to sanity. When I see completely out-in-left-field prices I just say "Not Today" and walk away. If they can get someone else's money, OK, but they don't get mine. Just be cool and don't pay through the nose. Nuff Said.
sometimes your shadow leads,
sometimes your shadow follows,
BUT when your shadow says "Cuidado!!"
