People are probably tired of hearing about the dysfunctional supply chain, but unfortunately it’s still a concern. We can expect more challenges for the rest of 2022.
The availability of disposable gloves will feel the impact. That does not point to a looming shortage, but it does affect pricing, availability of certain sizes, or availability in certain parts of the country.

Economies around the globe are in turmoil. High demand, market pressures—and the conflict in eastern Europe and its consequent political instability—are driving gas and oil prices higher, and countless industries are feeling the pain.
Last week oil reached $130 a barrel and may go even higher (although the price came down a bit as the week began). The worst-case forecast has been raised to $240 a barrel, and the high prices could lead to a global recession as soon as this year.
