of the reason americans are facing high gas prices because oil producing countries and large companies have not ramped up the supply of oil quickly enough to meet the demand. the reserve holds a one month supply had current u. s. consumption levels. it's intended for dealing with supply disruptions caused by things like natural disasters, not for managing prices, but the white house has been under pressure to tap into reserves as gas prices continue to rise in the u. s. leading to falling approval numbers in recent months for the president. the biden administration also says, for the 1st time it has coordinated similar releases from countries like china, japan, and south korea. the united kingdom says it will allow oil companies to voluntarily release their reserves to help supply. biden is also cracking down on gas companies who have been enjoying lower oil prices in recent weeks,

the price recovered some lost ground and went up and it, it is not clear that it's going to work out partly because this is a problem. the strategic reserves are designed to tackle disruptions and supply. the price is not up because of a disruption in supply today. it's because producers are not ramping up, supply very fast, and demand is recovering, perhaps faster than people expected. so there's an imbalance in the market, which is driven by supply management policies, and by the strategy of all companies, not buy one off disruption. and it's not clear that this move, we will address this in balance. the release volume is not very high either or really be less than what the market expected. the world health organization is warning. they could be another 700000 deaths from coven 19 in europe. by march, the daily right has been doubling since late september. corona virus, patients in the netherlands, are being transported across the border to germany,

7:21 am
even though the elections have end with efficiency, the whole process was affected by lack of independence in the judiciary. and also lack of respect for the rule of law, something that affected the equality and transparency of the process. the government says the elections were an example of democracy, their ruling socialist party, $120.00 of the $23.00 governorships. the opposition wanting the total national vote, even though 60 percent of the population did not participate. divisions within the opposition prevented them from winning more states. so our position leader, emily gabriella, says the election was not a defeat now or says young deity, that i felt oppositional, then them one for bell. this is a beth the fall, done the last 17 years re no update. these results before the opposition of not falling, who was falling as my little, the big defeat is for the government. i can honestly say nicola, my louise,
7:22 am
desperate to regain international credibility was a murder coley put on the government. nicholas madura was willing to given more governorships in exchange for validity of the electoral process and himself. this is not a transparent election from the perspective of a liberal democracy. it begins with the electoral council that has 2 members out of 5 of the opposition. we celebrate those 2, but they are a minority. can you imagine any country accepting that dennis willis trying to recover from an economic crisis. but sanctions from the united states and the european union complicate the government plans, protest and sanctions have not been able to force mother will out of office, which is why the opposition is back in the polls. there is, i will as a feeder paragraph. jury in the us state of georgia, has wrapped up its 1st day of deliberations in the trial. over brief dance, demonstrators gathered outside the court in brunswick. they calling for the 3 white

7:25 am
month, it was placed on the tri blacklist by us officials. jody westby is chief executive officer at global cyber risk. she says it's one of the strongest steps. any companies taken so far. it's very significant because the software was developed to target i phones and android mobile phones. so if apple can succeed and get a ban or an injunction, so that the en, eh, so software can not be used on their phones, it will effectively kill the n s o market for the software. so it's a very big move by apple. one that i'm very glad to see them take, i think it's very important. they're trying to hide their fear mongering and they're trying to hide behind terrorists and pet files. and the fact is, they aren't trotting out examples of terrorism and head of files and their technology is successfully defeating that. what we're seeing is governments that
7:26 am
have used this technology to suppress human rights and civil rights. and ways that are countered to democratic principles and certainly in the united states national security interests. so they are just simply trying to hide behind israeli defense licenses for the technology and also claiming that it can be used to catch bad guys . while the bad guys may be in a so inflation across the world has been linked to supply chain disruptions and a global shortage of chips used in sectors ranging from funds to cars as hit manufacturing. that's prompted samsung of the south korean electronics giant to announce plans to build a semiconductor factory in the us state of texas worth $17000000000.00 construction . a said to begin next year with operations to start in 2020 full. rosalind jordan has the story from washington dc. this is the 2nd facility for samsung in the
7:27 am
austin, texas area. austin, of course, is the capital of the state of texas. and the facility that samsung has had in that city has been there for about 25 years. this facility is going to be much larger. it's going to be located in a small suburb about 30 minutes away from downtown. it's going to comprise some 5000000 square meters, and it should hire between 1502000 people. once the plant is open for business. now this is also going to bring about $6000.00 jobs in related construction and, and so recalls during the construction period. but in a state of 29000000 people. that's a drop in the bucket. that said, this is the single largest of foreign investment in the state of texas as history added bank. so good on a promise that both the state officials and federal officials have said about trying to bring manufacturing back to the united states. there's also one of the
7:28 am
fact that for the 1st 10 years of this new plant existence, samsung is going to get a rebate on up to 93 percent of its property taxes. property taxes are what paying for public services in the state of taxes. and so, while everyone is saying this is a good thing, economically, there are going to be questions raised about whether this corporation will be paying its fair share. in a matter of hours, nasser is set to launch a spacecraft that's going to deliberately smash into an asteroid. it's a test run, in a case age entice, rather a giant based rock, and to be re directed away from us in the future. the devil asteroid way, dest grey direction test, rather, or dot, for sure. what is being aimed at an object code, dime, office scientists hope they can alter its course by colliding with it. amy thompson is a contributor at space dot com, an online resource for space information. she says the mission could provide
7:29 am
essential technology in the future. this size of asked her. it is really hard to detect with telescopes here on earth. so astronomers have probably only found about 30 to 40 percent of these asteroids that are orbiting near the earth. so the purpose of this test is to see if they can move an asteroids, so that if one is, you know, on track to impact the earth that they can prevent that from happening. the really big asteroids which are planet killers are pretty easy for nasa. and astronomers to detect, so what they're really targeting are asteroids that could be like regional destroyers like something that could have a huge impact and say, a certain part of the planet. so it's really important that we have a means to protect against those. this is going to be a test, obviously to push an asteroid just a little bit out of its orbit,
7:30 am
but this technology can actually be scaled up so they could use it for different things in the future, maybe for moving objects and deeper space or moving different types of satellites, that type of thing. ok. hello, this is al jazeera and these are the top stories. this our, the u. s. government is releasing $50000000.00 barrels of oil from its strategic reserves is a coordinated effort with several other nations to tackle soaring fuel prices. the white house correspondent, kimberly how kit has moved. i will, has a lot to do with the timing of the american thanksgiving holiday. this is a holiday that americans typically get into their cars and they drive great distances. and the problem is right now, some people can't do it because the gas prices are just.
