Filament availability

I have checked availability of filaments at several stores and dealers and they all seem to have the same problem, not in stock. You might get the kind of filament you want but not the colour especially black. Is this just another Covid shortage or is it a problem where the growing demand is just outstripping the supply.

Seems like its a Covid thing, I know shipping is ridiculous right now, maybe becoming shipping prohibitive.

I knew I couldn’t buy PVA from 3dpc. I had to get it elsewhere. I’m not even going to use it now. And it was expensive

Well, I’m glad I stocked up before Christmas. 25 rolls should last me a few months if I’m willing to not be particular about colour and I can get my PETG woes under control.
