USA Wait Times and Deliveries for 2023 Hybrid

I'm curious how long each of you waited for a 2023 Rav4 Hybrid, or at least how long the dealer has told you it will be. I'm eastern NC and just seeing in-transit inventory come online on all of the area dealer websites, but ofcourse they are probably spoken for.

I may end up with the gas version just because I'm not patient. This thread will help me decide if the wait is worth it. Thanks!

Edit: I see that there is a thread regarding waits in Canada, I started this one because they come from different factories and I think it's likely that wait times are different in the US. Thanks again.

Two data points to add.

I put a $1,000 deposit down in July in NH for an XLE Hybrid. I was told by every dealer I went to at that time that there was a 2 to 6 month wait and a 2K markup, and yes I ended up agreeing to that.
In October I got a call about a gray one, but I really wanted white. In early November another customer backed out on a white one, and I said I would take it. It was a Kentucky VIN.

A month later in early December a friend decided to get the same model. He went to a different dealership and said he would only pay MSRP, and they agreed with little argument but said 4 months wait. In early January the dealership called him and said they had a black one- not his first choice, but he said he'd take it. It was a 2023 Japan VIN Black XLE Hybrid. So he ended up only waiting a month and paid MSRP. He did only get 1 keyfob until there are more.
