I needed some spray paint so I dropped by Lowes in Tyler. About 70% of the shelves were empty with no upstock on the higher shelves. On the way home I stopped by the Walmart Superstore on S. Broadway and found the shelves about 40% empty.

Either there was dome kind of graffiti festival this past weekend or Krylon, Rustoleum and Valspar employees are all down with the Biden Blues.

I had read about the price increases and was at Lowes last weekend. Gallon paint seemed to be about 30% higher than normal. Struggled to find a quart of generic white exterior paint for $10 since most were around $20.

The reasoning I've been hearing is the chem plants that produce raw materials didn't come through the freeze very well, coupled with increased demand this year due to remodel / rehab projects (some also in response to repairs from the freeze). Then add in covid/gov't related worker shortages. Sherwin Williams stores just put in purchase orders and hope something shows up on the truck.

Are we about to see people neckbearding spray paint? Is this the new ammo?
