A price ceiling in the market for wheat will decrease equilibrium price and quantities, and a shortage of wheat will occur. Some consumers will benefit because of decrease in price, but other consumers who will have no possibility to buy wheat as a result of shortage and producers will be worse off because of the price ceilings.

Consumer surplus will increase, producer surplus will decrease, and the deadweight loss will be created.
