Some notes on that chart:
• The figure to focus on is the 7-day moving average, marked in orange.
• That last section is the 14-day window — the period during which data is most in flux — so points in the last two weeks are subject to go up. Unless there are major errors, they rarely go back down.
• Don't be fooled by the plunge in the last 7-8 days. Those points are built on relatively little data and will almost certainly increase as they get closer to the 14 day mark.

Not everything in our technological culture is going to be feasible once we reach the other side, and the parts that can be saved are those that we have the foresight to reconfigure for the likeliest forms of scarcity.
