4:19 pm
gusty in some areas, especially around the day. those will back off later in the evening hours. here's your temperature spread. as far as heading into the evening hours, we are going to see the sunset about 8:10, and we will have a few clouds out there, but mainly temperatures dropping into the low to mid 50's. these are a lot closer to average. look for more low cloud in this along the coast and also along the bay, maybe a patch of fog. mid to upper 70's, 75 to 79 in the south bay, 70 to 74 on the peninsula. upper 60's for downtown in south san francisco. along the east bayshore, 72 in
4:20 pm
richmond. fremont castro valley at 76 in our warmest temperatures are inland. look at all these areas of low pressure lining up, and guess what? they are all going to miss us, but they will have a little bit of an effect on our weather in the form of cloud cover and temperature swings over the next several days. to the north, one to five inches of rain are possible in places like portland and seattle. temperatures will hit 90 inland saturday and then how about some upper 70's to mid 80's? you can see upper 60's to mid 70's. a few high clouds in the afternoon, and there could be some high clouds sunday night during that lunar eclipse that dan is going to tell you more about now.

4:25 pm
model years not to drive them because the brakes can fail. mercedes says moisture can get into some of the breaking components and cause failure. according to freddie mac, the 30-year fixed rate is five 13% up from 5.27% last week. one year ago, it was just under 3%. the increases are attributed to the federal reserve's raising of the benchmark interest rate in order to combat inflation. the labor department says producer prices are up 11% in april over last year. the index measures inflation before it reaches consumers. even though rates are rising, they appear to be slowing just a bit. the producer price index increased a half percent from march to april.
4:26 pm
that half percent was the slowest month-to-month increase in seven months. still, it is quite a bit when you look at it on an annual basis. kristen: thank you, michael. dan: diesel prices are soaring to new record levels, and that could affect you even if you never buy diesel gas. experts they prices could soar to $10 a gallon by the end of the summer and with diesel use to transport many of the goods we buy, that could end up raising prices for food and disrupt supply chain once more. today, the national average for gasoline is up one cent from yesterday. in california it is five dollars 80 five cents. san mateo county has the highest average at $6.06 a gallon. kristen: the infant formula shortage is causing so much more than distress for parents. >> without formula, his life is at risk. kristen: and is it's not just

4:30 pm
deaths. >> the plant has been shutdown since february and thousands of children with rare diseases have in running out of formula. dan: nine-year-old carter coleman from walnut creek is one of them. stephanie: abbott says it will be at least two months until its baby formula will be stocked in shelves across the country, but for patients like carter, who is running out of a specific medical formula only produced at this plant, there's still no answers. at four days old, carter coleman was diagnosed with a rare metabolism disorder, also known as maple syrup urine disease. >> someone with the disease cannot properly process the protein found in our foods. >> if untreated, it can lead to neurological damage, coma or in
4:31 pm
some cases, even death. carter's mom and dad have been relying on a special formula that is only produced at a plant once michigan that has been closed. >> i have always thought of his formula as our safety net. stephanie: the nine-year-old only has a few weeks of formula left, which has forced his mom to start rationing his portions. i can just counting down to the day when we will not have anything. >> the white house is taking a number of steps to increase apply. >> that includes working with infant formula manufacturers to increase production. part of the issue is making sure there is stock on the shelves. stephanie: but carter's formula is considered medical food and is only produced by habit and distributed by medical pharmacies. >> i don't think there is any product left to be completely honest with you anywhere in the country.
4:32 pm
stephanie: information continues to be vague about supply for metabolic disorders. >> it could be a couple of weeks hour it could be six months before this is resolved. stephanie: so we brought this to carter's congressman. what can you do to help speed up the process for families like carter's >> i will call the fda director directly and do anything i can. stephanie: the congressman and adjust 4 companies control 50% of the market in the u.s. if one plant closes, the consequences are dramatic. a former fda associate director says moore should have been done to prevent this from happening. >> if we don't take it as a teaching moment in terms of an issue we've got to address, shame on us. stephanie: in the meantime, carter's mom is anxiously watching his playa formula run out. >> -- watching his supply of
4:33 pm
formula run out. >> every day we do not have it puts his life at risk. stephanie: she does not want to find out what happens after she runs out not to mention even when the plant reopens, it will likely be weeks before production catches up. kristen: that is so worrisome. it raises questions now that we're living in an age of covid, what are these families going to do if multiple plants are forced to close? stephanie: that is a great question. the impacts could be life-threatening, and that is exactly what congress is looking into now. in the meantime, president biden has sent a letter to the federal trade commission asking them to look into baby formula price gouging and its impact on smaller retailers, so another thing to keep an eye on. kristen: thank you. dan: if you have an grocery shopping lately, chances are you have noticed a spike in your bill, and for a lot of emily's,
4:34 pm
-- for a lot of families, it can put major pressure on them. >> these days, there's a new complication creating demand for their services. inflation. what have you seen over the past few months, not just with the pandemic, but inflation? >> we are seeing a ton of first-time buyers. >> we met adele, who was on a fixed income. >> my social security is what i live on and sometimes i don't have enough food by the end of the month, and i'm not asking for any help, so i come here. >> for carrie, a single mom of two, the sacrifice to put food on the table comes at the expense of her family's future.
4:35 pm
a program at her kids' school sends students home with additional food to eat. >> it has been really helpful because they sent home, for example, peanut butter, crackers, rice. basic things, but it really goes a long way. >> grocery bills have become more expensive as inflation reaches its highest level in 40 years. the highest hikes -- meat, poultry, eggs. according to the u.s. da, consumers can expect to continue to pay more for groceries. the agency estimating food prices could increase another 4% to 5% this year. though americans have seen an average pay increase of 5.5%, it is still not enough to keep up with the rising cost of rent, gas, and groceries. kristen: i stunt gone wrong ends kristen: i stunt gone wrong ends up costing two pilots more than big tobacco's cigarette butts filter practically nothing and are made of microplastic fibers

4:40 pm
somebody down there below, if something dropped, you could hurt somebody. all right, how many friends is enough. a university of kansas professor says what matters most is having at least one important person in your life. it could be a partner, a parent, friends, or someone else. they also say if want to have the most meaningful life where you feel bonded and connected to others, more friends are better. i don't think that is true for me. i don't think it is necessarily more but the quality of that venture. -- quality of that friendship. >> i was thinking you could have a ton of friends, but it is harder to connect individual and feel that friendship. i found that interesting, too. >> what do you think? what is ideal? >> will you guys be my friends? >> you know we are.
4:41 pm
i think it is true. i think a rich, happy, healthy, fulfilled life involves close friendships. of course, your spouse or significant other, your children, but then that group friends, it is not quantity, it is quality. it is nice to have several good runs. to me, a good friend, and i try to be a good friend, is someone you can count on. we all try to be that kind of friend, too. >> i will the same way. have three to five really loyal friends you can count on, but it is nice to have other friends because they bring other things to the table and other experiences and other parts of the world that you may not know about. >> we have been fortunate in that regard, but i know people who do not have many friends, and i feel for them. moving on, heinz is teaming up with a sustainable packing company to create a new kind of bottle.
