5:31 am
the changes in this forecast, including multiple cold fronts that are dropping in and keeping us cool for the foreseeable future. your full breakdown on this forecast is still ahead. as for our bridges right now, you're still looking great. we are seeing conditions still below 10 minutes out there on the bay bridge. love to see that san mateo bridge holding up at 13 minutes where you've been all morning and the richmond center fell sitting under that gray at 7 minutes to make your drive the golden gate bridge. similarly, under the cloud cover. so you're not driving through it. and 18 minute drive from 37 to the tolls. daria, thanks a lot, john. 5.31, it for your money this morning. filling up your gas tank today. >> is a good idea because starting tomorrow you're going to actually pay more. yeah, we've got an increase in the california gas tax set to go into effect at midnight. >> kron 4 sarah stinson live in san francisco. sayre just warmer. starting to see the numbers turn our way. we're going go right back up.
5:32 am
>> we just can't get a break. i mean, we're heading into the holiday weekend. gas prices down for once right here in south san francisco are actually seeing the cheapest prices. i personally seen while go on the hunt and this is below $6, 5.69. so if you need gas today's the day to get it. and here is where you should get it. apparently gas prices, you know, have been going down. and but unfortunately, we have a guest act that says set to go into effect tomorrow that will tack on nearly $0.3 per gallon on to the prices at the pump. discussions are that's just bad news we are not it not for this one. now, as we reported earlier in the week, democrats and republicans at the state capitol, they want to suspend the gas tax for one year and give people money to keep up with inflation. the budget plan, though, has not been finalized yet. and even when it does, the gas tax wasn't supposed to be suspended until october. 1st and they would
5:33 am
suspend it for a whole remember, the plan also includes giving you money, which would give you give some families up to $1000 depending on how much you make and how many kids slash dependents. you have. but tomorrow also marks the start of california's new fiscal year. so hopefully the budget agreement gets approved as soon as possible that gas tax goes into effect tomorrow regardless. so get your gas today. check out what prices people are paying at the pump right now. and we can compare to last week really prove to you that they have gone down because it's hard to believe still very high napa. today's paying $6.49 on average. and last week it was $6.58. you can see a list goes down. san gas on average went down $0.8. oakland's went down $0.9 and it just continues. so gas prices are, in fact going down. but then now we have this gas taxes adding nearly $0.3 to it per gallon. so people are hurting right now.
5:34 am
this is definitely not going to be good news to people who are hitting the road heading to work. but gas up today, unfortunately, hopefully you have a a full tank for the holiday weekend. if you're driving darya. james, as i've talked to many people out in the field to gas stations, people tell me they're not going anywhere they can for now. send it back to you. yeah. and i can at electric car, but i can go share of it. >> free though. the summer travel season is in full swing. wherever you choose to go, maybe you're going to take a flight. >> they are expecting a lot of people to do that. airlines are dealing, though, with staff shortages and that means it could be difficult because they're looking for enough pilots. flight attendants, air traffic controllers and that could make your plans a nightmare. kron four's dan kerman has more. >> the summer travel season is already in full swing with people jetting off to both domestic and international destinations and the 4th of july around the corner, it's only going to get busier.
5:35 am
we've had several days this month in which we've seen over 68,000 people departing through our security checkpoints in a single day. we think we're probably going to hit that same number again on thursday and friday leading into the july 4th holiday this year. that means being more prepared than ever. >> because so far it's been a summer of flight cancellations with flightaware saying more than 20,000 flights have been canceled just since memorial day. >> the industry is down. thousands of pilots and thousands of flight attendants. so they're working to hire people, but it literally can't happen fast enough that coupled with fewer flights, most of which are now fully booked can be a recipe for disaster, especially over the holiday weekend. we're going for a wedding. so we didn't have much choice in what we can to go. i'm trying not to overthink. it was an effort to get all the 5 kids pac. 10. >> i'm here. so we're just going for the best travel experts say if you haven't
5:36 am
booked your flight yet, your best bet is to go nonstop and take the first flight of the day. if you've already booked in your flight is canceled. there are specific steps you should take when you're trying to rebook a flight. >> use the app also message the airline on social media reach out and then get in line at the customer service rebooking desk as well. so you want to tackle you want to use every tool in your tool belt to try to be the first to get rebooked? because remember, you're competing against everyone else on that plane whose flight was just cancel. experts say it's also a good idea to know what other airlines fly to your destination in case your flight is canceled. >> that all translates into bringing your patients with you to the airport. also for a domestic flight. you want to arrive 2 hours early, 3 hours. if you're taking an international flight at sfo. dan kerman kron, 4 news. >> 5.36 the time in the east bay. we're learning more about a deadly crash of a sideshow in oakland over the weekend. at a news conference yesterday, oakland police chief leronne armstrong said the 2 officers are on an
