British citizens complained about food and fuel shortages. According to a report by the National Statistical Service, 23 percent of citizens said they could not buy food, and 15 percent had difficulty trying to get fuel. At the same time, 61 percent reported a change in consumer habits due to the lack of necessary goods in stores and the inability to find a replacement for them.

17 percent of Britons cannot buy the essential food they need every day. 23 percent of consumers complained about the inability to obtain prescription drugs. One in ten Britons said they had cut spending overall and started buying less.

The rising cost of goods and supply shortages have arisen due to disruptions in the global supply chain. Local lockdowns due to outbreaks of coronavirus created logistical problems, the consequences of which are still affecting the transportation industry.
