There is a lot to say here, but basically, I’m of the opinion that things will never “get back to normal”. That’s a fantasy.
I find it fascinating to hear stories about why something is going up in price, and for people to blame it on some sort of strange reason. A lot of it is simply to due with the fact that there are still, immense disruptions ongoing on all sorts of supply chains, whether due to geopolitical issues, climate change, the pandemic, or some other far off issue! It’s all connected. A reduction in (natural/methane) gas available in the market (from Russia, for example) leads to an increase in the cost of (natural/methane) gas, which drives an increase in the cost of production of fertilizer, aluminum, and other heavy industry, which… drives up the cost of food & pretty much everything else. These are all systemic issues, and they almost need a sort of ‘industrial policy’ to be dealt with appropriately.
