    General inflation in the US is due to massive liquidity caused by government spending at unprecedented levels. Those who claim it is a short term reaction to the end of the lockdowns are likely supporters of this massive government spending.


    Which those supporters of massive government spending act like doesnt exist in the US.

    Its amazing how Communists dont understand how anything works. The Oil/Gas/Fuels of Civilzation are sold on futures markets. Depending on those futures the retail price is impacted immediatly. So be smart, put down the Marxist news sources you read and smarted up.

    Although our shipping crate supplier gets his lumber directly from the mill and his prices have doubled. They also refuse to quote and will price you when you are ready to place the order.
    Unfortunately, most people don't have access to 'direct from the mill'. While we do have several local mills, not everyone has access to the trees for the milling either. So, back to having to depend on whichever big box or lumber yard for your supplies.....

    A co-worker started building a house 13 months ago. Quotes were only good for 10 days then, and then dropped to 5 days. They are lucky that they locked in when they did, they said they couldn't afford to finish it off if they were paying today's prices for materials.
    When an argument cannot be sustained on proven facts, devolve to opinions and anger, that always works.

    Doing some repair/replacement on my wellhouse.
    I went on Wednesday and bought 5 2x4 8'ers. They were up from 3.79 last year to 7.99.
    I needed one more, so when I went back Thursday, those same 3x4's were 10.31.
    Thanks Joe*....................
