The Fourth of July is just a few days away, and people are stocking up on fireworks. Chelsea Bode (bow-dee) with Alamo Fireworks expects sales to be high because people want to party after 2020 was such a bummer. Those looking to light up their neighborhood had better stock up now. There is a nationwide shortage due to COVID, which disrupted supply chains. That’s especially true for goods that come from China. The American Pyrotechnics Association says about 30-percent of consumer fireworks didn’t make it out in time for the 4th of July, and that’s driving up prices.
