How long can it take to get a car?

Apparently, Hertz in Phoenix has a major car shortage. After reserving a compact there through my corporate travel site for 10:30am arrival on a Wednesday, I show up around 10:35am at the desk (plane gets in early but shuttle to rental car center takes forever). No line but she has to get on the phone to find me my compact car. 12 minutes on hold and she says they are bringing the car for me and it'll take 10-15 to get the car the loading area.

In retrospect, maybe the shortage of compact cars is related to the price of gas. You think?
