Alan Jones has unleashed on Scott Morrison and Labor for campaigning at the Bathurst 1000 amid a supply chain crisis that could see supermarket shelves emptied before Christmas.

Scott Morrison was one of thousands at Mount Panorama on Sunday to celebrate the annual car racing event in western NSW.

While there he inducted Supercars legend Jamie Whincup into the Hall of Fame and made a speech congratulating Australia on its high Covid-19 vaccination rate.

But in a lengthy Facebook post Jones criticised both Mr Morrison and Labor leader Anthony Albanese for not dealing with the 'things that really matter to Australians' - largely that the country is running out of a diesel fuel additive, urea, which is critical to keeping trucks moving.

Australia's last urea factory is no longer producing the substance and exports of the chemical are banned by China.  

Half of the long-haul fleet of trucks on the road have a diesel engine that require urea to run and without trucks moving, essential goods can't be stacked on shelves. 

The National Road Transport Association fears Australia's supply chain could collapse within eight weeks unless China lifts its export ban on the chemical. 

In response to this, Mr Jones said political parties were too 'fixated' on Newspolls and the upcoming election and not the crisis.

'But all this nonsense prompts the question, who in Canberra has their head around the real issues?' he said. 

'Diesel trucks are described as the lifeblood of Australia; almost everything we buy spends some time on the road; yet we're told trucking networks could grind to a halt within a matter of weeks. 

'Where is the Morrison government?'

'What happens if stock isn't delivered to supermarkets? Or tractors can't harvest? Or hospitals don't have backup generators?'

The commentator went on to say Australia would be left 'up the creek' if this crisis wasn't to be resolved
