at the pump and grocery store prices, you say they are related. tell us how. >> the price of gasoline and food went up the last six months from 45000-barrel all the way up to 88 a barrel and even tried to shut down another canadian pipeline and i asked why one tenth about a barrel. the cost of trucking is going up in the products of the grocery stores and there's a shortage of truckers. if you have a shortage of truckers, you have a shortage of gasoline, i product you are shipping to the grocery stores on the east or west coast costs more.
some of the manufacturers have cut back and there's a problem getting all the products in. there are cuts on rationing products like some of the manufacturers in our advice to consumers was we have everything right now. shop early and you'll get everything you need. if you wait until the last minute and we rent out, you might not be able to get it in time for the holiday and that's good advice, plain good advice to the consumer. arthel: sure. everybody wants to know how we fix this how do you take the air out of the inflation balloon? how long will the inflated prices last? >> the price of gasoline and food rises, it's creating the
rise. arthel: but how long -- we get the problem, how do we fix it? how long do you think the prices will last? >> i think the president and white house turn on the pumps in the united states, 100 years worth of gasoline and oil in the united states, let the people pump and canada ship it down to us, turn on the pumps in america will survive this crisis instead of begging the russians to sell it to us, we have it in america. arthel: tap into the reserve is white rose but listen, when i go to grocery stores to shop for my thanksgiving, i want to look at what we are going to find. turkeys, very low in stock. two weeks ago, turkeys were 60%
out of talk. cranberry sauce low, sweet petito's low in stock. stuffing, low in stock but apparently there are more of those than last year. refrigerated pies people like are low in stock. as the owner of a chain of these grocery stores, can you help consumers by her hops telling the products at cost or a bit above cost? >> in new york city we are seeing where the only ones left alive. many have gone bankrupt and it's not fair for us to select cost invite employees have worked 365 days a year and they from their paychecks. arthel: i wasn't implying you have to bear the brunt, i just thought it was a fair question to ask.
do you find food banks are feeling this as well? >> i think it's been felt by all because the products coming in and the east coast area are coming into the same places. it doesn't affect that. arthel: those of us fortunate, we have to remember those depending on food banks especially this time of year we want to make sure we support them. >> we are working with food banks and next week we are giving 10000 turkeys to the needy. arthel: wonderful. john, thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you for having me. eric: asking you to donate to the food bank about the cashier when you check out and they've got pumpkin turkey thing you put your name on texas joins us to k

>> good afternoon mark. eric: the president will meet with his counterpart, what you think the president should say and can they achieve anything concrete? >> on behalf of the great city, thank you for having me on your show. these level of apprehensions, rio grande valley for decades we've endured these level of apprehensions we are talking about ms 13 gang members, cartel operatives, individuals with ties to the organization, that's independent of which political party has been in power. this must be a national solution and we need to meet with mexico and address these issues out there southern border but yes, these are issues that must be addressed with a solution just like we need a solution here in
the u.s. without national leaders doing the same thing because these issues continue to arise and we are having this conversation before, if we don't address it, ten years today we will be still having this conversation so kudos to law enforcement, local, state and federal law enforcement agencies that work together and collaborate to safeguard the public and secure the border and they are doing a tremendous job. however, we need our lack national leaders to address this with bipartisan, financial solutions that will have conceivable consequences and longevity with solutions. eric: we are looking at video shot wednesday in mexico, we hear there is another caravan coming, 10000 herself. what would you tell authorities to try to stop this? what concrete measures do you say and what you think officials should take now to get a handle on this?
>> let's start with the southern border, mexico seven border. this is something that can provide resources as well as intelligence to address this at that level. before they come to new mexico and our southern border, definitely plus keep in mind we need to address the issues that lead americans to leave their home countries. what are some of the issues? i know they've been addressed before but haven't really solidified any solutions? i don't think we have. going back to immigration reform, with not addressed this in decades. i'm sure people are tired of this but it's the same concept, we have not prioritized immigration reform haven't had the political will to address this so are we going to do this? matches having this conversation, it's great to meet and i hope this is not a conversation but just taking
photographs and not really dealing with resolutions but it must be done and some of this is addressing it at the southern border and in some cases, are they going to allow individuals and mexico as well? some of these individuals want to work and that's part of the process of pursuing the american dream but also some of these central americans live in mexico as well and spend their time in mexico and not just the u.s. was a binational issue we need to address and hopefully we have the political will to address it. and very soon. if not, we will have these conversations 20 years from today. eric: how does this affect your community? >> we continually coordinate with local law enforcement and federal law enforcement and entities to make sure we are prepared and we don't have the
resources especially when it comes to medical necessities, we don't have them especially if we have 14000 people at our front door, who might be equipped to address that level of influx of migrants but we continually work with federal partners collaboratively and i cannot say enough about our law enforcement, local, state and federal because they do a tremendous job day in and day out in spite of what happens around them. keep in mind and i've said this before, i cannot say this enough, independent of which political party has been in power, this has been an issue. are we going to address it as a country? hopefully we are in the near future, addressing these matters because communities are affected whether it's providing medical resources or law enforcement
officers to address or help with some of these potential risk factors that come in to play when it comes to the criminal element. not everyone is criminal, we know that, sometime this way that are not coming for any crime but nonetheless we need to address it. eric: you feel on the front line, you feel at first, you have a wonderful community. >> yes, we do. eric: we thank you and we will keep having you on to spread the message. thank you, mayor. >> appreciate your time. arthel: at least one person killed and several others wounded in an explosion in afghanistan. emergency workers say a bomb was attached to a minivan when it detonated on a busy street initiate neighborhood of kabul.
brian is live in london. >> on of horrendous attack, casualties is likely to rise as dust settles and the picture becomes more clear. the most recent casualties of just the latest attack and a series of attacks right across afghanistan over recent weeks. officials talking to the associated rest saying the blast occurred on express in a kabul neighborhood heavily populated by shiites who have been the target of repeated attacks like islamic state militants. islamic state is group that considers shiite muslims to be heretics. yesterday there was a sunni mosque in eastern afghanistan, 15 afghans in the hospital, the third bombing in just over a month. all of these attack, muslim
versus muslim violence, violence between different sects of islam persistent afghanistan and could prompt something again to the kind of civil war rudy and what we saw tragically in iraq in 2006. afghanistan had its own civil war in the 1980s. of course the taliban is now the government in afghanistan edits charged as such with providing security for all afghanistan's irrespective of their religious meanings. i have to say, ever since the taliban took control and allies have pulled out, we have seen islamic state again and again almost with impunity going after not just taliban targets but civilians as well. arthel: live in london, thanks, brian. eric: we just heard report, an
welcome back, white house press secretary john starkey said the biden administration is looking at every school in our arsenal. from gas to heating oil, prices on everything are growing up according to the labor department fuel cost in october from six to 12% higher than a year ago. will bring in john now, a global commerce economic contributor to the "wall street journal" and fox news dendritic.
john, based on oil and gas, how can president biden tackle these soaring prices? >> i think one of the risks is the government get too involved, one of the lessons we had from the 1970s was the government, it's painful when gas prices go up and food prices go up in the government made a lot of bad decisions putting in price caps, price controls and they made a bad situation worse so the issue of inflation should be in the hands of the federal reserve which manages the money supply into many cases, the government should just get out of the way and that some of the problems plaguing the market sort themselves out. arthel: what about the idea of dipping into oil reserves? i would lower the prices of a negative effect as well that goes with it.
>> that is one way to tap into the supply right now. we have a large fracking industry in the united states is marketplaces at play and burn more money by turning on pumps more aggressively so you have to ask, should the government get in the middle of this or should it just to stay out of the way? we were through this dramatic. with covid where the economy shut down, it's opening up and there are a lot of disruptions, not just in the energy market but markets and restaurants and supply chains that bring christmas presents to our children and it taking time to work out all of these bottlenecks in one of the risks we learned in the 1970s when the government starts meddling in these markets aggressively, it makes a bad problem even worse. arthel: how is the government doing that?
>> one of the issues right now i think the biden administration and congress needs to consider is how much stimulus they've pumped in to the economy. it's also an issue for the federal reserve which ultimately is responsible for managing brought inflation, not just gas or food prices but inflation across the board. in response to covid, there was a huge amount of money pumped into the economy, the economy is bring out now reopening, it might be time to stop doing the public and the feds started to wind down some of its stimulus with some of its bond buying programs. they've got some heart calculations to make. arthel: let me look at the energy, propane up 50%, natural gas 30%, electric heating up 6%.
people need to heat their homes, how much time you think the biden demonstration has to do something? >> there's a midterm election in the year so i would say they have a year. before people start taking out whatever frustration they've got on the politicians back here in congress or in the white house. that's about the right amount of time, it's going to take time for these sort themselves out. they haven't sorted themselves out within a year, we might have this problem. with the fed and treasury department and white house are saying, these are temporary disruptions, be patient. they have it work themselves out in your thin the politicians have a problem on their hands. arthel: the white house is also saying layers in wall street and the federal reserve who agree with our assessment inflation is
expected to substantially decelerate next year so let's hope for the psaki of consumers americans are bearing the brunt of this. thank you for joining us. >> thank you very much. eric: new york city's mayor pushing or refusing to back down. eric adams, former police captain himself has officers to fight gun violence despite a shocking morning from a black lives activist who says the undercover police units are back on the streets, it will unleash new rights. >> eric adams pledged he would hire the first new york city commissioner and the top essential candidates are former seattle police chief carmen, former newark police chief roman and philadelphia's first black female commissioner, danielle
outlaw following last summer's protests and riots in new york city, adams promised to be tough on crime while at the same time holding police officers accountable. he wants to bring back nypd's anti-crime unit, to bring down shootings. he says the units will be reinvented by recruiting less aggressive crops and making them wear body cameras, black lives matter leader told me it's not enough. >> the fact that body cameras are not preventing crops from brutalizing people. what will prevent cops brutalizing people is sending cops who harm people to jail. as it stands, police don't stop other police officers from harming people. if they did, there would be no eric carter. reporter: a contentious meeting this week promised after there would be riots, fires and
bloodshed police officers come back. adams is calling on more democrats to condemn comments like that. >> national, state and city should stand up and say we will never allow anyone that there would be blood in our streets. we have to be honest about that. >> despite pressure, he promises to bring back anti-crime units which were disbanded in 2020. eric: thanks so much. arthel: after nearly 14 years, britney spears conservatorship, the battle has ended. what next for the popstar? ♪♪
