dwyane wade. >> hanging out with us now. >> josh allen, buffalo bills quarterback. you know? what am i doing at this desk, everybody? >> look at all these names he's dropping. >> oh, i got plenty in the pocket. want me to keep going? but it was really was an exciting weekend. great to see everybody there. they really turned out in miami for the race. and look who else was there. we have lewis hamilton, michael jordan, tom brady, and david beckham. >> wow. >> wow is right. those are the g.o.a.t.s right there, but we're going to have much more on that grand prix. very exciting weekend. we have a lot of news to get to this morning. the latest on gas prices is coming up. they're likely to hit a record high today. but we'll begin with the war in ukraine and vladimir putin's annual world war ii victory speech. he had a new message for the troops. >> as ukraine endures russia's relentless assault. let's go to our senior foreign correspondent ian pannell in ukraine. good morning, ian.
>> reporter: good morning, robin. vladimir putin, as you said, has just given his much anticipated victory day speech in front of thousands of russian troops. i think in many ways it was more remarkable what he didn't say for what he did. no doubling down here. there wasn't a mass mobilization. there wasn't a declaration of war. instead what he tried to do was use the success, the victory against the nazis in the past to try and justify the war today. ♪ this morning a massive military parade in red square with vladimir putin rallying his troops and the country behind the war in ukraine. the parade commemorates the anniversary of the soviet victory over the nazis. but putin using a word of choice and a war of necessity accusing america, nato and kyiv of provoking the war. he had a message to his troops and militias in ukraine saying, you're fighting for the motherland for its future so no one forgets the lessons of the second world war, so there's no place for nazis in the world, but with so many
troops tied up in ukraine, this was a smaller parade, and the traditional flyby of fighter jets was canceled apparently due to bad weather. putin claims victory day is close at hand. but that's not how it feels here in the northeast. less than 20 miles from the russian border and putin's troops are in retreat. >> i mean, it's pretty shocking. you can see the level of destruction wrought to innocent people, to civilian homes, to a sleepy countryside village. that is what's left of the russian military here, so when vladimir putin declares victory, that's what his victory looks like. in a surprise and highly secretive move, the first lady crossed into ukraine on mother's day to meet with her counterpart. olena zelenska. >> i thought it was important to show the ukrainian people that this war has to stop, and this war has been brutal. >> reporter: russia's attacks in the country unrelenting, more than 60 people feared dead after
a russian bomb destroyed a school in the east. government officials releasing these images, showing smoke rising from what had been a place of sanctuary for up to 90 people. the governor of the region saying, the chances of people still being alive are small. in the coastal city of mariupol, 170 more civilians flee, children and the elderly leaving the city by night, arriving at ukrainian-held territory exhausted. this man saying, every day we had doubts that we wouldn't be brought out and that we're going to be left behind there forever. at the besieged azovstal steel plant, bombs continue to pummel ukrainian positions as the russians push to take full control of the city. the far right azov holding a news conference refusing to surrender. >> we're basically here dead men. most of us know this. and why we fight so fearlessly. >> reporter: given what putin said, i think it's now
reasonable to expect a long, slow, grinding campaign ahead with no clear end or victory in sight. george. >> okay, ian, thanks. let's bring in our chief white house correspondent cecilia vega, our military analyst, colonel steve ganyard. cecilia, let me start with you. before, ahead of vladimir putin's rallying of his people today, president biden tried to rally our allies. >> reporter: exactly, george. you saw some very strategic counterprogramming from the white house. they really wanted the president's moves yesterday to be seen as this split screen to vladimir putin's speech today and you're talking about it, that call with g7 allies, they lasted about an hour and did this on sunday to show this show of force, this unity among western allies ahead of that speech today. they came out of this commitment with allies to ban or even phase out russian oil imports. the u.s. has already done that. this is not going to be easy, and it's not going to be immediate given how dependent so much of europe is on russian oil. there's also, now, george, a new
round of sanctions. let me show you right here. the u.s. going after three state-controlled russian tv networks. the u.s. is accusing them of spreading misinformation about the war. they're also going after or issuing new visa restrictions on thousands of soldiers and military officials who are suspected of taking part, you'll remember this, in that massacre in bucha. all of this is really, again, meant to ratchet up the pressure on putin and russia in this longstanding campaign. >> cecilia, thanks. let's bring in steve ganyard, and, steve, a lot of people expecting vladimir putin to make major news today, he didn't really. >> he didn't, george, he used it as he traditionally does to stir up national sentiment. the interesting comments, russia had been forced to act. and the other interesting comment, russian troops are fighting in their homeland, in the donbas signalling that's what's most important to mr. putin, but it's also noteworthy what he didn't say. there was no more talk of nuclear weapons, and he did not declare victory.
so we really don't know anything or any better before the speech where or how this war might end. >> he didn't call for a draft in russia as many thought he might. >> yeah, i mean, what's the point of mobilization if you're really just going to put them into a military that has proven itself corrupt and incompetent, so more people aren't going to fix the russian military and making the same kind of faulty kit and equipment it has been, and so mobilization really doesn't make sense. i wasn't going to help the effort. now to gas prices not letting up. diesel prices reaching an all-time high, and now we can see record prices at the pump for the average american. our chief economic correspondent rebecca jarvis has the very latest. good morning, rebecca. >> reporter: good morning to you, michael, and we are basically seeing prices back where they were when they hit record highs in march. this morning, the nationwide average for a gallon of gas,
$4.33 a gallon, and that comes after the united states has taken these massive measures like releasing oil from the strategic petroleum reserve. that is not the only place where we're seeing prices higher. we're also seeing prices higher for diesel, record high at $5.54 a gallon today. diesel is the fuel that moves the economy. everything that we do for the most part relies to some extent on diesel, the thing that truckers use, ships use it. some airlines use it. diesel is very important to the price we pay for things like groceries and diapers and with the memorial day holiday and summer weekends around the corner, that only means, robin, that prices are expected to continue to climb. robin. >> all right, rebecca, thank you. now to those wildfires that are burning in new mexico and the extreme fire danger across . zohreen shah is in santa fe, new mexico. she has the latest. good morning, zohreen. >> reporter: good morning, robin.
extreme fire danger warnings were issued in new mexico, colorado and the texas panhandle. nearly 20 million americans are potentially impacted and here in new mexico, firefighters are fearing potentially explosive fire behavior. this morning, unprecedented high winds and bone dry conditions threatening to explode an already monster size fire in new mexico. the cav canyon hermits peak fire combining weeks ago, now burning an area bigger than chicago, nearly 1,700 firefighters battling the state's second largest fire, what the national weather service is calling a dangerous, long-duration, critical fire weather event. 1,300 homes have been evacuated but still firefighters say some have refused to leave. >> you can't outrun this fire. if it gets up and going, you are in the path of danger. >> reporter: many have evacuated. some multiple times as the fire keeps covering more ground. >> we got evacuated from our house and then we went to your
moms and we got evacuated from there right after. >> you got evacuated twice in two days? >> yes. >> reporter: and many people don't know when they'll be coming back home, up to 60 mile per hour winds are expected in some places today. makes it very hard to battle this fire. michael? >> it does not help, zohreen. thank you so much. we're going to turn to ginger to tell us if those dry, windy conditions will persist. good morning, ginger. >> good morning, michael. not only persist, but expand and today is the peak of all this. straight to the map. i want the show you who's getting what, a combo problem, we have a megadrought, so all the fuels are extremely dry, unprecedented dry. then you have single digit relative humidity. up to 75, extreme fire danger goes through today, pueblo today, east of santa fe so las vegas to clayton, and remember it's also been hot, and remember to the east it's been record hot. amarillo, abilene broke records over the weekend. even roswell tied a record at
101 and we're going to see more of those broken records and this is a long duration event. o the miesd george, elieve it, by the ech we'll get the latest on the battle over abortion rights after the leak of the draft opinion that would overturn roe v. wade. congressional democrats set to take action this week to preserve rights and our congressional rachel scott is tracking it all. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: george, good morning. this is shaping up to be a critical week in the battle over abortion rights and what democrats are calling the fight of a generation. over the weekend, thousands of people took to the streets rallying to send a message to the conservative-leaning justices on the bench. some gathering outside of the home of justice brett kavanaugh and chief justice john roberts. those demonstrators part of a majority of americans who believe roe versus wade should be upheld. but across the country, if roe is overturned, at least 26 states would either ban abortion or severely restrict access to it.
leaders in those states say it wuld be a long time coming, george. >> rachel, given the divisions on capitol hill, this move by the democrats to pass a national law to protect abortion rights is largely symbolic. >> reporter: right, george. in just 72 hours they will force a vote on legislation to protect access to it. for millions in this country, it is all but certain to fail. republicans appear to be united against it. but this vote is about getting every single senator, democrat and republican, on the record on where they stand on this issue. mitch mcconnell says if republicans take control of congress, it is possible that his party could pursue a national ban on abortion. and now democrats are hoping to use those words as a rallying cry this midterm election in november. >> rachel scott, thanks very much. george, now the battle against covid, new hot spots are emerging as cases and hospitalizations are rising. eva pilgrim joins us now with more.
good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this morning, as nearly every state in the country is seeing an increase in covid cases, the u.s. is now inching closer to a grim milestone, more than 997,000 people have died from covid in this country, and it's likely we'll cross the 1 million death milestone within the next week. the current hot spot for cases is the northeast, that's new york, new jersey, and all of new england. despite the rising cases the average number of daily covid-related deaths continues to drop. right now the average is 340 daily deaths. to put that in perspective, at the peak of omicron we were averaging 2,600 daily covid-related deaths. so what can you do? health officials say make sure you've gotten your vaccinations and boosters. 54 million americans are completely unvaccinated. another 91.5, about half of those currently eligible haven't gotten their boosters, guys. >> have to keep that in mind. eva, thank you. now we're going to turn to all the action at the first ever
miami grand prix. formula 1 making a big splash in miami, and our victor oquendo is in miami with more on the big race. good morning, victor. >> reporter: good morning, michael. i don't have to tell you, but hard rock stadium was the place to be this weekend. f1 taking over the magic city with all the star power and speed. >> max verstappen wins. >> reporter: with the wave of the checkered flag, max verstappen zooming past the competition to win miami's first formula 1 grand prix. the world's fastest and most popular motorsport racing around the track at hard rock stadium, home to the miami dolphins with all the exhilarating moments for fans watching every tight turn. >> lando norris has made contact. >> reporter: violently spinning on the track, britain's norris lando to crash on lap 41 forcing a virtual safety in his place. a star-studded affair.
drawing names like tom brady, david beckham and serena williams. >> we got the rock, we got the beckhams. >> reporter: but even with all the glitz, glam, and celebrity, on sunday, all eyes were on the drivers with organizers adding some american touches to a sport that has thrived in other parts of the globe. the podium leaders getting a police escort that had an air of pageantry. and later the victors handed miami dolphin football helmets to wear on stage. >> we need to keep pushing. hopefully from barcelona, we can do a step up. >> reporter: so f1 is here to stay in miami with plans to host the race for at least the next ten years, but with the sport just exploding with popularity here in the united states, they're also looking at other major cities including las vegas. guys? >> ooh. >> i can barely handle miami. i don't know if i can handle las vegas. but it really was exciting. good to see everybody come out,
and unfortunately, lando norris, my guy, was the only guy to have an accident in the race. you know, he'll be back. >> he's okay. >> he's okay. he's great. a lot more coming up here on "gma" including that mystery in the bahamas. three americans dead. we'll tell you about the investigation this morning. an 80-1 long shot, rich strike struck it rich. coming from behind to win the kentucky derby. will he run in the leg of the triple crown? the next leg, yeah. first, let's go back to ginger. >> the forecast already began. thank you, robin. i feel like we'll verify that one pretty quickly. let's go ahead and look at what happened over the weekend. it was cold and rainy in the northeast, and you had so much rain, more than 5 inches. this is in west virginia on the potomac. a barge set loose there, and very different than what was happening down south with all of those records. today, you've got this low pressure system, a lifting warm front and associated cold that's going to bring you with damaging winds and even a tornado threat from wisconsin back through minnesota. let's get to your local weather in 30 seconds.

>> i can't savene. >> reporter: the major success of these megahit films paving the way for other highly anticipated summer showstoppers like "top gun: maverick." >> i just want to manage expectations. >> reporter: and the "toy story" spin-off, "lightyear." but like many things these days from gas to groceries, going to the movies is about to become more expensive with some theater chains already implementing surge pricing for tickets. it's thought to be a strategy to offset declining revenues from both streaming movies and the pandemic. >> it was really an experiment to see if people who were going to the movies were price-sensitive, like, whether they would pay a dollar more because they wanted to be there for the opening of "spider-man," and it turned out people would pay it. >> reporter: theater giant amc says it's already seen some success charging about $1 to $2 more for highly anticipated movies like "the batman" compared to other films that were released at the same time. regal and cinemark, also reportedly upcharging guests,
quietly raising prices for "spider-man: no way home" late last year. for this new "dr. strange" secret, audiences may not be able to travel to different dimensions but may pay a cheaper price depending on the theater. >> things just got out of hand. >> reporter: it shows amc and regal charging above the average domestic ticket price of $12.99 for certain screenings. cinemark was just under. >> the idea you're going to pay a little extra on the opening weekend so you can see it first and talk about it with your friends first, i think that's a thing that's going to be here to stay. >> all right, becky. are there any ways families can beat those rising prices? >> reporter: yeah, i have a few ideas. first of all, think about the loyalty programs at your local theater. so amc has their tuesday value days. if you come on tuesdays you pay $6.50 for a ticket instead of $18.49 any other day.
then you can buy discounted tickets and gift cards at costco. i saw one movie chain had a $50 gift card that was $39.99 at costco so that's 20% savings. and don't forget about the old matinee. i checked out one chain and the that were 30% off. i'm just saying, we could ditch work and go to the noon movie and just call it a day. i think that's on. >> yeah, but then they'll make the money back when you go to the concession stand with the popcorn and sodas and all that but it all evens out. yes, enjoy. enjoy. thank you, becky. coming up next, our monday "play of the day." it's a good one. d one.

we've worked together with for the last 20 years. it couldn't be better. an exciting time for us. you mentioned the thursday night schedule coming out, can't wait to see what the lineup of games are for espn on monday night. >> joe, he kind of alluded to it but you had an opportunity to kind of get away from each other. you have been in booth for 20-plus years, i mean, but you still wanted to stay together? >> yeah, i mean, you're right. this is the proof is in the pudding. i could have bolted. he bolted first. and it was like, hey, do i really want to work anymore with troy kenneth aikman? i weighed the option. i said yes. espn said come aboard, joe. we're going to have fun so here we are. year 21 together. and we really love working together. i guess that kind of shows since we both jumped ship at the same time. >> we love eating barbecue, too, which is also why we're here, so this is going to be fantastic. >> that's coming up shortly.
i'll let you go on this, troy, do you remember your monday night record as a player off the top of your head? >> undefeated, i'm pretty sure. no, i don't. >> 13-9. that ain't bad, right? >> i know we won a lot of games on monday night. >> 13-9 ain't bad. though, right? that's pretty good. 13-9. >> 13-9? what? >> you look surprised. fellas, it's good to have you. welcome, welcome to the family. we will see you all for the season on monday nights and for barbecue. we'll have more from dallas, the first round of the united states of bbq showdown. >> announcer: "gma" this week. we hope you're hungry because -- >> you know at "gma." >> we love barbecue. >> announcer: that's why we're heading out on the united states state of barbecue road trip. >> announcer: it's time for -- >> some of the best barbecue.

5:30. it took -- thank god there were people around, there weren't many because of covid restrictions, everyone was separated, you know, but luckily i was sitting with my other cast members, and they set off the alarm screaming. then we had some pros showed up who were in the crew, and they did great cpr, so if you haven't taken a cpr class. >> so you knew right away? >> i knew nothing. i didn't remember anything for a week. i had no memory for eight days. then it all came back and i got back to work after about five weeks and we finished the scene that we were shooting that day and then carried on with the season. you know, the experience has really resonated and continues to for me. it wasn't an experience like up's heard of someone seeing some vision moving towards it or something like that. it's a blank for me.
an utter blank. and yet everything that happened after that is what's impacted me. the social media response of people being so supportive and loving really and just thinking about, you know, this flurry of activity of my last decade of my life and maybe wanting to slow down a little so i can appreciate things a little more. >> boy, you are beloved. folks love you. >> what happened? [ laughter ] i had no part in it. i didn't help at all. >> you play this character -- >> i did nothing to make that happen. >> look at your memoir, because something you said -- that's later but right now, saul, how do you feel that the end is in sight now? >> it is. you know, it's so weird because we've been doing it for six years and truly i have been doing the part for about 10 years or 12 years. so i'm used to going away and
coming back to saul, so this is the first time i won't be coming back to saul. i think what's going to impact me is to watch the finale, i know what happens obviously, yet somehow i think i need to see it to really go, oh, this story is ending. this story is over. so in my mind i think in the back of my mind i'm still going, when are we going back to albuquerque? but really when i see that, i know what happens, and i know it's going to be a great, great ending. i'm so proud of the writers and thankful for what they went after in the ending of this show. >> "better call saul" is a prequel speaking of endings. >> it is. >> what's it like to film a show where the fans already know what the ending is? >> well, they don't know what the ending is. [ laughter ] you don't know. you don't know what you're going to see. they kind of know a point that
we will be at at some point. but the real -- you know vince and peter who created the show and all the writers and there are many writers from "breaking bad" as well part of "better call saul," they lived to create problems for themselves and then try to solve those in a way that has emotional logic. they've done it again. they'll come up with surprises. many of them. >> let's give everyone a look. >> i expanded the mission to be more inclusive. here we welcome all ages, all creeds, all stripes. >> and who is this saul goodman? >> you got it. what colonel sanders is to chicken, saul goodman is to the law. [ laughter ] >> that's a line. >> that's a line. >> yeah, yeah. well, you know, my character is
based on some real lawyers who sort of franchise out their work, what they do. so he wants to franchise out eventually, but that's his big dream, i guess. >> congratulations on the memoir. >> thank you. >> wanted to get that in. it came out in march. something you alluded to earlier. you said, i'm going to quote you here, you said you had no intention of making it big. >> no, i never thought about such a thing. no, i just wanted to be a comedy writer, and that's wat i did for most of my career on "saturday night live" and tenacious d and so many other shows, so many shows you never heard of, and then i just started getting these opportunities as a dramatic actor, and i guess i'm okay there. i do all right. [ laughter ] >> being under the radar isn't going to happen any longer if that was your intention. >> i think i'm under the radar but that's the kind of self-delusional you tell
yourself, right? i'm just a regular guy, i'm not on tv. people say, hey, i love your work. and you're like, what? getting coffee, grocery shopping or -- what work? oh, the work on tv, right, right. >> "better call saul" airs tonight on amc. thanks for coming in. >> thank you. thanks for having me. ultimate barbecue trip is coming up. ♪ let the good times roll ♪ ♪ let the good times roll ♪ you're a champion. you're not a quitter. quitters don't do what they're supposed to. champions do. and you're a star. and you shine. that's what you do.
