I know we go on about the gasoline situation, but shouldn't food also be a concern at this point? Not just the scarcity, but the fact that canned foods have an expiration date, for two reasons. First the food will spoil over time, preservatives or not, and second, from contamination from the metal container. The acids and preservatives can eat away at the cans over time.

Food poisoning should be a real problem for those people not growing their own food. And without ways to treat these gastro-intestinal infections, death is a real possibility.
Not quite yet on the canned food. Remember, at most it's been a year. The scarcity of food is a little hard to believe. They need to get smart and hunt down some of the distribution warehouses for the grocery stores. Even the British show Survivors got that right.
