Digikey and Mouser are both out of all the usual low-cost ceramic caps in 0.1uF 0805 X7R. They were like 2 cents last year, now the cheapest on mouser are 5 and cheapest on digikey are 8 (or they're out of stock). Seeing the same sort of thing with larger values too.
This is just nuts - and it seems like it's gotten worse in just the past few weeks. I was able to find them for 4 cents on digikey this weekend, but now the cheapest are 8! Anyone know what the story is here? Did something happen to a major manufacturing facility or something? Should I be holding out for this to blow over, or snapping them up in expectation of the situation getting worse?
