Inflation hit seven percent, today the most since 1982. I was around 30 years old when I saw inflation this high. The Federal reserve said they are going to raise interest faster than they had thought till these numbers came out. Over 100,000 business have closed because of the restrictions mandated by the response to Covid-19. When you close so many restaurants then we must shop at the grocery stores and when the mom and pop stores close then we have the majority of the population going to Walmart, Costco, and big shopping grocery stores; and bingo the shelves start emptying faster due to more shoppers and less stores.
