be covering politics and we're actually where am i covering full test. but what's most important to me is talking to people, understanding what they're going through so that i can convey the headlines in the most human way possible. here at al jazeera, we believe everyone has a story worth hearing investigative journalism. my role in this fight tied the in information about global experts and discussion. the pandemic didn't create all of these problems. it showed us our true colors, voices from different corners. we don't need to sensationalize how we tell these stories. what journalists do best is look at the heart of the story. programs that open your eyes to an alternative view of the well today. oh no, just dara hm .
7:01 pm

7:02 pm
we begin in the united states where president joe biden is urging oil companies to take action against soaring petrol prices. in a lesser bivens that refine this need to produce more gasoline and diesel should work with his administration to address the crisis consumer prices in the us of reach 40 year highest driven by a shortage and oil supplies. let's get more from our white house correspondent, kimberly how kit. so is this about the mid term elections i want from to this letter? it appears a pretty big factor. americans are happy right now is to point out the consumer price. did that has a hit affording here high in terms of the things that americans purchase about food, energy cost, and that includes gasoline. the price for a tank of gas is hitting record hide $5.00 a gallon is the national average in california, topping $6.00 a gallon,
7:03 pm
and the wages new united states have not had that with the rising prices. and so as a result, americans are angry and the fear of this white house is that they're going to pay dearly come november and lose control of the house of representatives in the senate . and that would really affect the president, the ability to get his legislative agenda forward for the final 2 years of his term . so as a result, the president is working with the oil companies are trying to and that's the point of this letter saying look at we've got to try and increase the capacity of the refining that's going on. what's happening right now is that pre cope with levels in the united states, we're about a 1000000 barrels of a day higher in terms of the refining add to that western sanctions on russia. there is no longer the same about have russian oil be imported into the united states. and there's more demand for the gasoline in the united states right now,
7:04 pm
because more americans are going back to work after the pandemic is led to these high prices. but at the same time, you are companies blaming the biden administration, saying look at you came into office, you cancelled the keystone pipeline. you put in place these climate change initiatives without having the infrastructure in place. and you all so cancelled all the new leases for drilling on federal lands. your part of the problem is that there's a lot of finger pointing going on right now. not a lot of solutions. and kimberly the same time realistically though, can the u. s. president, really force companies to either produce or refine more well, not really, that's sort of the upshot of all of this. what the president can do. and the biggest tool at his disposal is the strategic petroleum reserve is already utilized there. san, what he can do is release some of this. this will temporarily bring down and has
7:05 pm
brought down prices, but it's temporary and it's finite. you have to come up with a longer term solution and that's what he's doing. but at the same time, we should point out this letter is coming one day after the president announced the trip to saudi arabia, where he's under pressure to work with the kingdom, to encourage it to post oil production to bring down prices. the energy secretary was asked today, have you ever received any assurances from the saudi kingdom that could potentially happen if they know? so they're looking for domestic solutions and that's what this letter is all about . or i, kimberly, how could that, thanks so much israel, egypt and the european union has signed an energy agreement, allows israel to send its natural gas to egyptian ports and then exported to europe . the us trying to move away from its dependence on russian energy and ease soaring gas prices. bernard smith reports from west jerusalem. ah,
7:06 pm
israel sits on about 0 point one percent of global gas reserves. not much, but the european union is looking everywhere it can to reduce its reliance on russian gas. so egypt already taking in 26 percent of israel gas production will start liquefying more at its 2 mediterranean plants. it'll trim just a few percent of the 40 percent of gas, the e u bies, from russia. this is a quick fix. it's not going to store the whole thing. i mean, if you look at the capacity of the system on its failure digits, it's something like 678 percent of what we are receiving from much. and it is the most that we need other steps. we did noise ratio next more in the bit. israel had frozen gas exploration as it tried to meet renewable energy targets. but the search alternatives to russian fuel has offered these railey government to lucrative and opportunity to turn down. the
7:07 pm
e. u is also committed to moving away from fossil fuels. at the signing ceremony in cairo, the e u commission president suggested there was long term interest in partnering with countries to its south and east. it is for us, very important also to look forward into the new forms of energy. and these are, of course, the renewable energies. and here i must say you are in a very lucky position as you have the resources that are necessary for renewable energy in abundance. the sun, the wind. so these will be the energy of the future and the demand will be enormous . israeli gas is sent to cairo through the arab gas pipeline. it was designed to pump gas the other way from egypt to jordan, syria, and lebanon. but egypt uses its own gas now, but domestic needs. egypt wants to become
7:08 pm
a regional hub for the gas trade. and israel can help that happen, but it'll be a couple of years before your a p and start using significant amounts of israeli gas as there are challenges and increasing production capacity to cope with the new demand. bernard smith al jazeera west jerusalem. the u. k says it will 5, any legal challenges against its plan to send asylum seekers through under the 1st . the filtration flight from tuesday did not get off the ground after last minute intervention by the european court human rights. but the u. k. home secretary for the patel says the government will not be deterred well, this decision by the stress, the court to intervene was disappointed and surprising, given the repeated and considered judgments to the country in our domestic court. we remain committed to this policy. these repeated legal barriers. all madam deputy speaker, very similar to those that we experience with all other removal flies. and we
7:09 pm
believe that will fully compliant without domestic and international obligations and preparations for off each flight from the next flights of already begun. optimistic course of the view that the flight could go ahead with her policy. she knows this is on we're both on ethnical and won't stop the criminal gangs. but yet she still went ahead and spend half a 1000000 pounds, chattering a plane. she never expected to fly or from she still went ahead and wrote a 120000000 pound cheque to rwanda, with a promise of more to come. and she still went ahead because all she really cares about is picking fights and finding someone else to play. the baba has more from london. the government has insisted that term thousands of people will eventually be sent to rewind, where people have crossed the english channel in boats. they insist that their aim is to stop the risk to their lives. and to break the business model of what they
7:10 pm
call the people smugglers and but pretty, but how actually said something in parliament term just a while ago. and she said that am that people who are coming over by boat are, are, are seeking to jump the q. and she said that, and the government wants to offer legal migration routes to people. but on what she calls the illegal migrants. these desperate people often fleeing war and torture in countries like syria, iraq, afghanistan. she said that am that they are severely curtailing what the government can do for legal migrants. it's a bit of a mess, really lumping lots of different groups of people together. and the critics of the government say that they're doing this simply to generate headlines in the right wing press here. there is some credence to the popularity that they're gaining from this among their own conservative voting base amongst the public. this asylum parties much more evenly split burton the support has actually gone down since
7:11 pm
april as details emerge of the cost involved. and also who these people are because most people crossing the channel do actually receive asylum in the end. and they are, as i was saying, people who have very strong cases for asylum if they're allowed to make that. here in britain, the european commission is threatening to take the u. k to the european court of justice. the british government wants to scrap a post brags it's agreement on checks on goods arriving in northern ireland. but the, you says there's no legal or political justification for britain unilaterally change in international agreement. so let's called a spade expect this is illegal. the ok bill is extremely damaging to mutual trust and respect between the eel and the u. k. it has created deep uncertainty and cast

7:13 pm
a tentative agreement was signed, but now the british government has decided to unilaterally pull out of that and come up with its own rules and regulations as to what should happen. and that has angered the european union. this launched the 3 fold legal challenge. the 1st is the britain has failed to introduce check. so goods going to northern ireland from great britain, has failed to share trade data with the european union and has also failed to introduce inspection post. the concern is that this could indeed escalate birthday to the european court of justice where britain may end up facing a fine or potentially into a deep and darkening trade. war with the european union pulling all sorts of believers to punish britain for breaking the rules. still had on al jazeera, find out why thousands of people, and least in democratic republic of congo, are protesting against rwanda. and it's lisa floss treacherous conditions. close

7:21 pm
it looks more like the 180 c off that you may typically fly on a shoe co route. but what it does have is the capabilities of a loan whole aircraft and it's short, whole efficiency with long range capabilities that is known as the middle of the market. that at the years have been working to ensure that they take a very fun hold off. because if an lines want anything these days, it is that bus to the t to be able to have a fee that they can operate efficiently on a 2 hour flight. so on an 8 hour flight and if they can have one across you. but that's a win win for the airlines. what i must have done is they were ahead of the game ultimately when it came to secure in the middle of the market with boeing. they haven't launched a middle of the market across some say that the comparison is the 737 mac 10, but that max 10 doesn't perform with the same capabilities as the 321 x
