Cement shortages now hit 35 states

A cement shortage triggered by increased home building in the United States and demand from Asia has spread to 13 new states since June, raising the total number affected by tight supplies to 35, an industry trade group said.

The newest states experiencing shortages are Ohio, Arkansas, Arizona, Delaware, Indiana, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, and Vermont, the association said. Some of the shortages are local, not statewide, he said.
