I had a 2wd nitro stadium truck for a while, still do actually but I haven't used it in ages. I would look for am electric kit to start since you don't know much as you said, it will be much easier and you will learn more as you own and repair it. $200-300 should get you something decent. I find the HPI Racing kits have the nicest looking bodies if you want it to look as realistic as possible. Painting is easy since you use spray cans and tape generally.

I didn't really notice much of a shortage, and the price of the fuel was always expensive and never went up. I'm not much of a painter either though, and usually settled for solid colours, because the bodies just get messed up as soon as you put them on on off-road. The first body you paint yourself won't look great, but you can get good at it pretty quick.
