Recent news reports seem to indicate we may fast be approaching a diesel fuel shortage. This got me to thinking.

First, I would think that if goods cannot be delivered that RIGHT NOW would be a good time to stock up on anything that you normally buy. If goods cannot be delivered to Walmart, where are alternatives?

Local farmers might have some stuff.

Also think about the fact that restaurants won't be able to get food either.

Does this sound like what happened 2 years ago?

What was in shortage at that time? What did people want?

Can you provide it?

If trucks actually stop moving does the country stop too?

Remember that trains run on diesel too. Not to mention a rail strike possible added into the mix.

What can business thinkers do about this?
