Sardines becoming scarce / Headline SurferYouTube download / Top Tenz video / Like it or not, resources are finite. If we don’t use them carefully, we’ll run out. But while we’ve all heard the scary stories about peak oil, we’re guessing you had no idea that we’re running the risk of hitting peak banana. Bananas and sand, both shown in scene setters above, and sardines, too (at left) are among the 10 items.

Well, babanas are among 10 items listed as a resource that could become scare, due to a tropical fungus. Baseides bananas, two other notable items are sand and sardines.

Another item is sand, which is a key ingredient in giving our World's Most Famous Beach in Daytona its distinct identity, along wioth the sun and surf, of course.

These are and oher items are listed as potentially becoming scare in a video by Top Tenz called "Top 10 Resources You Had No Idea We’re Running Out Of."

4. Caviar;
