5:10 pm
justice will be served and your own true healing can start. prices that consumers pay for everyday items soared last month , either highest levels in four decades, according to labor department report. today prices skyrocketed by 8.5. ktvu tom vacar joins us now, after looking into the factors that made up that rate and why some believe the inflation rate tom may start to ease. there's some signs of that for many, many years. 2% inflation simply did not matter to most consumers or anyone else. and it was never a political issue in that, say it in that sense. it is now, though. an unprecedented pandemic supply chain problems and lack of workers resulted in fewer goods available as demand for them sword. inflation began . russia's invasion of ukraine caused energy and food prices to soar even more marches. 8.5% inflation eats up a lot of purchasing power. that is higher than the state 7.25 sales tax,
5:11 pm
which does not include local sales taxes, but inflation is now higher. then all sales taxes in 28 counties, including solano county, jim wilcox is a renowned professor of economics at u. c. berkeley's haas business school . but those prices are not going to go up inexorably at the kinds of rates that we've seen over the last couple of years. inflation is calculated by pricing major goods and services over time. it includes basic foods such as cereals and beverages, including milk and coffee, as well as housing costs , furniture, clothing, transportation, medical care, recreation, toys and entertainment. add in education and communications, as well as random stuff such as tobacco haircuts and funerals. we are fingers crossed close to peak inflation. economist wendy edel berg is a senior fellow at the
5:12 pm
brookings institution. one of the nation's best think tanks. what we saw in the month of march was that prices of core goods driven by automobiles outright fell we're now finally starting to see the pivot away from goods, inflation and towards services. inflation consumers notice fast price changes for the things that they buy most often food. and fuel. you see them prominently displayed when you drive down the street, you see them prominently displayed in grocery stores, and we buy these things very frequently. it's been a shock and you see it reflected in the consumer sentiment numbers. people are not happy about having to worry about overall inflation. well, of course, we all feel it. but low and moderate income households actually spend more than double the share of their income on food and fuel than higher income folks back to you. tom is there anything that people can do to
5:13 pm
help ease inflation as well? actually, there are some amazing how quickly it would happen. quit buying so much stuff don't travel so much, and the reason for that is that if that demand goes down, then the price is automatically come down. the other thing is, people need to go back to work. and the reason for that is that then we can start clearing up some of the problems brought about by supply . chain shortages were more things are being made more things are being shipped and more things are getting to where they want to go in much less time, and that also lowers expenses. those are the two things we could do, starting right now. big ripple effect for short tom vacar in the newsroom for us, tom. thank you. gas prices are down around the country for the second week in a row, according to triple a. the average price has fallen now to just about $4 in much of the country. it is more expensive, though here in the bay area, the highest gas prices are in napa county, where the average cost of a gallon of regular is $5.90 in san francisco. it is 5 84.
5:14 pm
it's $5.80 in sonoma county. 5 76 in alameda and marin counties , and the least expensive area for gas is solano county, where the average is 5 65 a gallon. donut lovers. listen up. christie chris crispy. rather cream wants to ease pain at the pump. the chain will be offering a dozen glazed donuts for the price of a gallon of unleaded regular gas that starts tomorrow and will be available on wednesdays through may. 4th. krispy kreme will set the price based on the triple a national average price of a gallon of regular gasoline on the monday of each week and yesterday that was $4.11. the usual cost of a dozen donuts there ranges from $8 up to almost $15, depending on what kind and where the store is. vacantly renters tell us they've applied, waited months and still not received emergency rental assistance brooks jarocz coming up. we asked the state about the holdup is tens of thousands fear they'll be forced from their homes. i just don't
5:15 pm

5:16 pm
for most people, hpv clears on its own. but for those who don't clear the virus, it can cause certain cancers. gardasil 9 is a vaccine given to adults through age 45 that can help protect against certain diseases caused by hpv. including cervical, vaginal, vulvar, anal, and certain head and neck cancers, such as throat and back of mouth cancers, and genital warts. gardasil 9 doesn't protect everyone and does not treat cancer or hpv infection. your doctor may recommend screening for certain hpv-related cancers. women still need routine cervical cancer screenings. you shouldn't get gardasil 9 if you've had an allergic reaction to the vaccine, its ingredients, or are allergic to yeast. tell your doctor if you have a weakened immune system, are pregnant, or plan to be. the most common side effects include injection site reactions, headache, fever, nausea, dizziness, tiredness, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and sore throat. fainting can also happen. help protect what counts. talk to your doctor or pharmacist about gardasil 9. this is elodia. she's a recording artist. what counts. 1 of 10 million people that comcast has connected to affordable internet in the last 10 years.
5:17 pm
and this is emmanuel, a future recording artist, and one of the millions of students we're connecting throughout the next 10. through projectup, comcast is committing $1 billion so millions more students, past... and present, can continue to get the tools they need to build a future of unlimited possibilities. but i know that we represent a lot of people that are in the same situation and it's really hard. right now, hundreds of thousands of californians are still waiting for emergency covid-19 rental assistance. new applications for the program
5:18 pm
closed at the end of march. but ktvu phantom applied as far back as last summer. and they still have not received any relief investigative reporter. brooks jarocz has been digging into that program, its shortcomings brooks and what's being done to get money out faster. well christina, the california covid-19 rent relief program began early last year and is supposed to help tenants and landlords facing financial hardship during the pandemic so far less than half of the households in applied have actually seen funding. staying data shows, while nearly a half million have completed an application. more than a quarter million are left waiting and wondering. my husband and i moved into this house when we were newlyweds. um i was i had just found out that i was pregnant with our son. um and it we, you know, this is where we've built our family for five years, melissa mendez and her husband have centered their lives here in brentwood. but the pandemic brought new financial challenges we've had to choose between paying bills and feeding
5:19 pm
our family, you know, feeding our kids, so they applied for california's covid-19 rent relief program last august. now, nearly eight months later, their application is still pending. after countless phone calls, i was never given any new information. everybody just said be patient. they're processing it. they'll get to it. they're not alone. nearly a dozen other tenants and landlords tell ktvu . their applications have been stuck in under review for months . if this program doesn't deliver these resources, people will be evicted. people will become homeless. true half his vice president of research and policy link. it's a nonprofit that focuses on racial and economic equity. she says state data shows nearly 100,000 bay area renters have applied for the emergency rental assistance program. more than half 51,000 are waiting for applications to be reviewed and one in three reported getting an eviction notice or facing threats when
5:20 pm
they applied. it is incredibly distressing. it's incredibly stressful for renters in that position where they can't. they don't know if they're going to get help. and when it will come , so how do they manage their finances? how do they manage these communications with their landlords? the problem has made its way to the general assembly. thousands continue to wait for relief. whether applications are pending. lawmakers extended eviction protections through june that gives the state less than three months to get the money out. jeffrey ross is one of those in charge of the entire program. what do you say to those people who have been waiting months and still are not seeing any money? we understand the frustration look, anyone that is in need. we can't get them even if we could get them the money in a matter of days. it's not fast enough given given the need and we recognize that and we are committed to doing it as quickly as we can. he says legislative changes have helped increase processing speed from
5:21 pm
about 8000 applications and $80 million a week in february to 12,000 applications and 112 week now everyone that applied on or before march 31st with an eligible application with rent and utilities will be paid, and that is what we are now moving as fast as we can, and we're looking to get through every one of those applications in the next 12 weeks. the clock is ticking at current pace policy link estimates it will take about 30 weeks to process the backlog of applications. that means october, potentially putting renters at risk, so we need to extend the protections until the program can deliver on the resources, the state says by closing the portal for new applications and redirecting staff, it will meet the june deadline and pay out those legitimate applications. i think we're in a really good spot in terms of what we're trying to do and be able to wrap up this program. too little, too late for those like the mendez
5:22 pm
family, they say the long wait and threats by their landlord are forcing them to plan on moving. it will be very hard to say goodbye and i can only hope and pray that what we move on to is something better. california's attorney general sent warning letters to eviction attorneys saying tenants cannot be thrown out for unpaid rent unless they failed to apply for the program or were denied. so we're landlords i spoke with said they did apply with their tenants months ago, but have yet to see any money. kristina also heard from some writers who have applied and then reapplied that led to them being paid more than one. so how is that possible, while others are still waiting? great question. i'm told this program looks at the specific needs and vulnerabilities so that determines where an application falls in the state's . q so it's not a first come first serve process. there's no denying the demand. housing advocates want to see the application portal reopened, some more renters and landlords can get funding in the future. but of course, that does come at
5:23 pm
