Epoxy prices thru the roof? Shortages? I’ve been told they are rampant?

I just grabbed some west systems last week - price was as expected and supplier had stocked shelves so... ?

Supply chain is all screwed up, but at the moment things seem normalish

Much of the back stock was destroyed in the freak storm that happened in Texas last year. there are many resin manufacturers there. they are working to fix it.

I've been buying C units of WEST since 1980 or '81.
Seems like the price has more than doubled!!!!

Oh, wait, that's 40 years ago......

Seriously, it does seem like current price might be a larger than normal step since last purchase a couple years ago.
But not scalper rates. OTOH I know there are resins that at least a few years ago were near half the cost of WEST at the time.
