An excerpt from the Americas Truckers Association report stated that:
In as little as 3 days, significant food shortages, especially perishable items will occur.
Clean drinking water will run out in 2- 4 weeks.
Health Care, (hospitals, nursing homes, pharmacies ) will all be affected, some in as little as 24 hours.
Service stations fuel supplies will start to run out in just 1-2 days, and with fuel shortages, secondary effects would occur.
Retail, manufacturing, and economy will be disrupted and delayed, some within hours, and even the financial sectors will be greatly impacted.
This impact is not just in the U.S., but world wide. We need to realize just how important the industry is, as well as all the supporting industries.
