YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - People have started needlessly panic-buying toilet paper again.
There's actually no threat of a shortage unless the panic buying itself depletes supplies.
You probably remember this happened in the initial reaction to the pandemic in 2020.
The fear of not having enough TP snow-balled and created the very problem shoppers wanted to avoid -- a shortage.
Manufacturers eventually caught up with demand, but it took a while.
Now it might be happening again as the Delta variant spreads and COVID case counts and deaths rise.
Manufacturers are working to meet the new spike in demand.
