As gas shortages strike parts of the U.S. as a result of the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack, some Americans are worried about another shortage: Chick-fil-A's popular sauce.
The chain revealed this week it is experiencing shortages of its famous Chick-fil-A sauce due to supply chain disruptions affecting restaurants throughout the country.
As a result, Chick-fil-A would limit consumers to one sauce per entree, two sauces per meal, and three sauces per 30-count chicken nuggets, according to an email from the company to customers.
However, some prominent social media users are not blaming the restaurant chain - they're blaming President Joe Biden instead.
"In Joe Biden's America: Chick-fil-A has to limit sauces because of supply chain issues," Rep. Josh Mandel (R-OH) tweeted. "Gas stations are having mass shortages and prices are soaring. The price of groceries is skyrocketing. Everyday Americans are hurting and they miss Donald Trump's America."

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) asked if there is "no limit to how awful Biden's America can get."

The supply chain shortages facing Chick-fil-A are not unique, as the pandemic continues to interrupt shipping times, costs, and product demand.
Early in February, reports emerged of a shortage of chicken wings at American fast-food restaurants and fast-food chains.
Boba balls, as well as the tapioca flour from which they are made, would be difficult to find for many months due to significant congestion in Asian imports caused by the pandemic.
A shortage of Heinz ketchup packets has also been reported by several restaurant chains. America's No. 1 ketchup brand is struggling to meet increased demand for its single-serve sachets, which are included with most takeout and delivery orders.
Speaking to Fox News, Chick-fil-A representative Jackie Jags said the shortage in sauces and other Chick-fil-A items can be blamed on "industry-wide supply chain disruptions."
"We are actively working to make adjustments to solve this issue quickly and apologize to our Guests for any inconvenience."
