Summary: As supply chain problems prolong a shortage of new automobiles for a  second year, customers face near-empty dealer lots, high prices and long waits to buy  new cars. Although automobile manufacturers discourage dealers from charging more  than their cars’ sticker prices, many dealers say they have to be realistic about what the  market will bear. In extreme cases, dealerships have charged as much as $40,000 above  the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) for some luxury cars.  Product shortages cause prices to rise and product surpluses cause prices to fall in the  free market. Under the current scenario of supply-chain crisis in the US, discuss the  general production and consumption opportunity cost (highest-valued alternative given  up to engage in an activity) likely to have an impact on the US GDP for the coming years.
