    Phrase

    I want to check if the correct usage of the phrase used for "in lack of (information)" is "in want of" or "for want of".

    Which one of the following is correct?

    Customers suffer in want of information.

    or

    Customers suffer for want of information.

    Welcome to the forums. Use "for want of".
