    Target blows past quarterly earnings expectations and says shelves are full for holiday season
    Target says inventory is up by $2 billion from last year after efforts to bypass global supply chain disruptions




    Oil demand (and prices) crashed last year for obvious reasons (less places and reasons to drive), OPEC is keeping global supply low during a time of higher demand to make up for last years decline in profits with higher prices now.

    It’s a tactic to make up for last year’s pandemic-related declines.

    And corporate Dems and Conservatives are using it to their advantage.

    People need to get a grip if they can't find peanut butter on occasion at one store. Go to a different store.



    I went shopping a couple of days ago. Target and other retailers were packed with merch as it gets. The grocery store was as well. Only the Walmart was disappointing.

    I occasionally have to go to 3 or 4 stores instead of just 2 lately but I'm not exactly finding it impossible to get everything I need, it's just a little more scattered than usual.

    Some things are a bit rarer but this idea that it's like the Great Depression spread by so many online shows a real disconnect with reality or being really okay with lying one's ass off.

    Also, just like it was before during the start of lockdown in 2020... Aren't these the folk that have been prepping for doomsday since Clinton was in office? Again, instead of just going "See... I was prepared. I'm not affected by this" they choose to act like they are two days from starving because cat food and pizza rolls are delayed.

    Bad for the planet but good for prices. And a byproduct of COVID19 travel restrictions is lower demand for oil.

    • U.S. welcomes agreement to boost crude supply in January
    • Group says it could revisit the decision if the market changes

    The Biden administration has been calling for them for months to raise production to meet demand and were rejected until now.
