3:09 pm
than the national average at $3.44. that same gallon one year ago cost about $1 less. gas prices across the country are on the rise, and analysts expect a further rise this holiday season. even president biden says winter next year. prices are soaring, it's simply demand although gas prices usually drop after the summer driving season. this year is different. following covid lockdown, more people are taking to the road. president biden says pricing is also to blame for the pain at the pump. during a town hall-style meeting earlier this week, he said there's no quick fix for escalating price. >> i don't -- >> i must tell you, i don't have a near term answer. there's two things i could do. i could go in the petroleum reserve and take the out and probably reduce the price of gas maybe 18 cents or so a gallon.
3:10 pm
it's still going to be above $3. >> reporter: according to data compiled by aaa, gasoline in all 50 states is now over $3 a gallon. california has the high prices averaging $4.534 followed by hawaii at $4.27. some people pay even more, a gas station in a remote part of the california coast is charging $7.59 and nearly $1 more for a gallon of premium. some industry analysts say the u.s. must do more to increase domestic oil production. >> i think the best way to reverse this is to have president biden reverse course. send a signal to the rest of the world that the u.s. energy producer is back. send a signal to opec that because you're restricting supplies, we're going to get off the back of the u.s. energy industry. >> reporter: and experts say higher gas prices could have a broader impact on the economy

3:12 pm
gas is going to be 43% higher than last year. and that's the main source of heating for, families here. so we're going to have families who have already been hit in the octoberbook, paying much more -- pocketbook paying much more to fill up their gas tanks. now they're going to have to choose between inflated costs of food or inflated costs of heating their houses over the winter of we have a real, you yu know you know, joe biden said he wasn't going to raise taxes on the middle class. the middle class is going to get hit hard with joe biden's inflation tax. jon: and then there's the supply chain crisis which nobody in the administration seems to be taking all that seriously, at least if you listen to the transportation secretary and the white house rest secretary. listen -- press secretary. listen. >> couldn't get dishwashers and furniture and tread mills delivered on time, not to mention all sorts of other things. so why -- >> tragedy of the tread mill that's delayed.
3:13 pm
>> i think there's always been two kind of christmas shoppers. there's the ones who have all their list completed by halloween, and then there's people like me who show up at the mall on christmas eve. if you're in that latter bucket, obviously, there's going to be more challenges. jon: what do you think about those answers from the white house? >> i think that is one thing i hear from many of my constituents, these are big problems we're facing and many crises that we have, but also the fact that it seems like the biden administration doesn't really care hutch about it or listen -- hutch about it or listen or take them seriously, the citizens, that these are real problems impacting their everyday lives. so it's kind of a slap in the face, if you will. and, you know, these problems were caused by bad policies. bad policies created day one. day one with executive order on the keystone the pipeline, that started the trend as far as its tone with energy independence here. day one stopping the building of the wall and the remain in mexico policy, that was the immigration, beginning of the
3:14 pm
immigration crisis. so his policies directly are impacting this. and the major expenditures of money that have contributed to this inflation, and what is his solution? oh, we need to spend trillions of dollars more on this socialist reconciliation plan that they have. so more of the same to try to get less results. i don't think anyone's buying that. and that's why he's sinking in the polls, and that's why i think people are very skeptical about his leadership. jon: yeah. americans are noticing the increase in prices. when asked if their bills for groceries and everyday items have increased a lot or a little, 43% say they have increased a lot, 40% say they have increased a little. americans are paying attention, and it's the hurting. new york republican congressman chris jacobs, thanks. and coming up, new details from the 911 calls made from the

this is an incredibly well organized caravan. griff jenkins reporting it's so well organized, they actually have qr codes people can scan if they want to participate. they've got american flags, they've got banners that say joe biden for all. the main activist leading the group says the biden administration policies are enticing to these migrants, it's almost like a cattle call for them, so that's why there's so many of them trying to get here to the united states. as that caravan starts marching, you can see they're not going to let police or security forces stop them. take a look at some video from here where we are this week. we still have migrants showing up where we are right now as we have got this other caravan on their way. all week long we see these family units cross the rio grande, illegally walk into texas, and they just come strolling by the incomplete border wall we're standing to, the wall the biden administration stopped construction of. and that is frustrating to border patrol agents because you can see they endlessly have to

3:37 pm
has shown a video which is being used in churches across virginia. president biden is apparently going to stump for terry mcauliffe. but that's a real problem for mcauliffe, because biden's collapsing popularity is part of the reason why the virginia governor's race has become a kind of referendum on the first nine months of joe biden's time in office, and it's not going well. and glenn youngkin looks like he might win a state that has been trending very sharply blue for, you know, over the past decade. what we're watching at the moment, jon, is something really extraordinary. we're watching the perception shift about which party is on the side of the little guy. and you heard very clearly in president obama's speech there he was mocking glenn youngkin because he's been a former ceo, and he head a joke about glenn youngkin, you know, not being the kind of guy who did the dishes, not doing the grocery shopping. but all over virginia there are
3:38 pm
ordinary people who are really cross about their children being brainwashed in schools and the perception is changing. ordinary people are thinking, wait a minute, the democrats don't represent me anymore, and that's why the state might actually now go back to the republicans. jon: mcauliffe said during that debate that he didn't think parents had any business getting involved in what the schools are teaching their children. >> yeah. that was a real, that was a real blunder, you know? a gaffe is when a politician accidentally tells the truth. and what mcauliffe said there when parents all over the country but particularly here in virginia were saying, you know, they don't like what's being done this schools, they are standing up, they're complaining particularly in loudoun county, and then mcauliffe really blundered by saying he didn't think that parents should be
3:39 pm
telling teachers what they teach children. during the pandemic parents have had a much clearer view of what's going on in school, and they don't like what they see. and, you know, the number of ways in which the democrats and biden in particular are failing ordinary people; inflation has been running at 6% since biden took office, so ordinary americans are seeing the value of their wages falling. the last report you had from the border, there's an absolute crisis and extraordinary scenes coming from there. ordinary people want the border policed, they want immigration, proper immigration policy, and they're astonished and aghast seeing, you know, illegal immigrants rushing the border and the biden administration not only not doing anything about it, but actually welcoming them. so there's a real perception change about which party stands the up for the little guy and for ordinary americans, and it could split virginia back from democrat to republican. jon: president biden has made
3:40 pm
one campaign appearance with terry mcauliffe. he's going to make another one next week. do you think that that actually is going to help the mcauliffe campaign? >> no, i really don't. i think biden is part of the problem. i mean, i think that the whole democratic party and its, you know, misperception about what ordinary people want is the central problem. but president biden's popularity has been collapsing, and the idea that when he turns up to stand beside, you know, terry mcauliffe and stump for him that this is going to do mcauliffe any good, i think, is a fiction. the trouble for mcauliffe are, of course, is that he can't say, mr. president, please stay away. he has to pretend that of course he's being, he's being advocating for biden's build back better spending of $5 trillion more which is, of course, stoking inflation. they can't escape each other, but i don't think it's going to
