ad on 4th of july. but instead of speaking to california voters, the ad is airing nearly 3,000 miles away in florida on fox news cable zones across that state freedom. it's under attack in your state taking aim at florida governor ron desantis and his efforts to ban abortion limit free speech in class and tighten voting restrictions. >> desantis has been considered a potential front-running republican candidate for president in 2024. for join us in california. we still believe in freedom. the ad setting off political fireworks and raising questions about newsom's future beyond california. steven maviglio is a democratic strategist. i think it's a really smart investment may for $100,000. she's getting million dollars worth of national publicity. >> you know, there's a lot of buzz these days about joe biden not running again, will run. and i think gavin newsom surrounding what's his name and that running and that this is one way to guarantee that. but newsom has recently said he has subzero interest in running for president. i think the governor smart enough to realize his name is still on the ballot this year to run
for governor of california. and even though it's going to be a cake walk. >> i think he doesn't want to take that for granted was voters. so it's just something to say. i mean, anybody spend 5 minutes with the guy knows he has. you know what? i'll was looking at that oval office. meanwhile, desantis has not directly responded to the ad. his campaign spokesperson told cnn gavin newsom might as well let a pile of cash on fire. >> pass the popcorn for his desperate attempt to win back the california refugees who fled the hellhole he created in his state to come to florida newsom's attack on desantis. the latest chapter in a growing political rivalry in sacramento. ashley zavala kron. 4 news. >> well, 4.37, news for your money now. some good news, actually, for drivers around the state as gas is getting slightly cheaper, the price at the pump is actually been dropping for 19 consecutive days. triple a shows that california drivers are paying an average of $6.23. a gallon now, which is $0.7 lower than it was last week. but that's
still nearly $2 more per gallon than this time last year. the decrease in price comes despite a gas tax increase of nearly $0.3 last friday. so here's a look at how much we're paying around the bay area. gas in santa rosa is a few cents higher than the state average. now at $4.29. a gallon. san francisco's at 4.33, you can see san jose is hovering right around 6.24, and oakland is 6.20, 9. well, in an effort to avoid rolling power blackouts, california may start tapping fossil fuel plants. right now the state is getting most of its energy from renewable resource sources during the day. but there's not enough storage to run off solar power once the sun goes down and some environmentalist groups think that state didn't act fast enough to build up renewable resources to prevent this potential. reuse now fossil fuels. well, here is some promising news for drivers of electric cars to worry about running out of charge before getting to their destinations. researchers at
the university, california say they've created lithium ion batteries that travel longer on a single charge. regardless of whether the weather is hot or cold outside batteries that get too hot or too cold have shown to perform poorly like slow charging. and we know that in cold climate areas, there's no word yet on when these batteries would be commercially available. but the research continues and it looks like they are making progress. tesla, by the way, saw a dip in deliveries last quarter after one of its largest factories were shut down because of covid restrictions in china. it's the 2nd quarter numbers that we're talking about. and in that quarter, tesla manufactured 250,000 vehicles. that's 47,000. less cars produced than they did in the 1st quarter, although it was right. pretty much right in line with expectations. the drop is being blamed on that extended lockdown that we saw the shanghai plant and its supply chain constraints. the situation also speaks of the importance of tesla's shanghai factory to its overall business. tesla has been working on getting manufacturing and delivery up
to speed at those 2 new factories that have just launched in texas and germany. we'll see if those start making up the numbers. well, in other news this morning, what's 4th of july without competitive hot dog eating right? well, the annual nathan's famous hot dog eating contest returned to coney island after having to change locations these past couple of years because of the pandemic. michelle ross was there catching all the action and reveals if world champion joey chestnut was able to defend his title. >> an american holiday tradition is back at nathan's famous flagship restaurant in coney island and thousands of people were there to see it in person. the nathan's famous 4th of july hot dog eating contest has a clear favorite for the men's competition. we're excited to see joe on. could be our next president. >> exciting. watching me. quickly. it's amazing. with 10 minutes on the clock,
