On all 5 worlds my countries within the past day are spending much more and I think it has to do with the shortages. Anyone else notice this?

The only way to get some resources is to:

A: Produce it yourself and buy it off contracts (increases costs)
B: Setup and use a Common Market (increases costs)
C: Do a ton of "immediate buys" to just auto-generate the missing resources (increases costs).

Use any blend of A, B, or C you want to achieve desired supply levels.

Part of the change could also be your purchasing different quality than you had been before, or when the countries were AI driven.

For country:

You can go Trade - Order Strategy and Quality

There you should set the quality to 120 for regular country goods.

For corporations:

My Corporations - Supplies

There you should set the quality to 180, this allows you to produce the max quality possible for a country controlled and owned corporation thus maximizing profit

There are indeed significant shortages.
the price of raw materials is up, but also the price corporations get for products is up.

the only danger is that corporations will be out of raw materials and will stop production.
and of countries with zero supplies in some products, reducing its supply index and the welfare index going down with it.

some huge shortages are now smaller.
shortages all over all worlds but a bit less severe than before.
