American and Britain would never have problems with supplies, especially with oil. Both nations ran on war with minor supply problems around the world together. Both America and Britain also respected each other greatly and that helped with communication and making plans. Germany and Italy on the other hand were not so lucky. Both nations had problems with each other culturally. Italians looked lazy to the Germans and this made the Germans very angry with the Italian soldiers. Picking an ally for Germany must have been tough. To Germany, Italy must have been the best they had. If Hitler were to probably redo the war then he would definitely not become an ally with Italy again.
