If you thought bacon would run out when pigs fly then guess again. There's a nationwide bacon shortage!

Do you have a problem in life? Throw some bacon on it! At least that's what I always thought. How long will it last? You may not know this but I have some sad news. I have to report that this country is facing a bacon shortage or a bacon "crisis" if you will.

From News 10 ABC, our current need to wrap or slather everything in bacon is causing this country to eat through our pork supply.

Currently, The U.S. has over 7 million pounds of bacon which is the lowest it has been since the late 1950's.

How does this effect the Capital Region? Well, right now we aren't in any immediate danger of running out but we should be prepared for bacon prices to go up in the future.

Hopefully, this won't have a negative impact on great events here in the Capital Region like Bacon Bash.

I don't want to alarm anyone but you should definitely go out and stockpile some bacon. What could it hurt? At the end of the day you'll just have more bacon.
