8:19 pm
and they get in between some of those canyons, they can be accelerated and you can see some stronger gusts. of course, that brush is extremely dry there. we've had dry conditions here in northern parts of california even worse in southern california. so yeah, things changing for them as we're going to see high pressure building in overhead. so hopefully they get a hold on this fire winds to look like they'll be a big problem as we head in toward tomorrow. but that brush there are so dry. of course, that's a concern as well. now we had a beautiful day today and still looks gorgeous outside tonight. skies are nice and clear. that's the way it's going to say, look at these temperatures right now about 74 degrees right now in concord, 70 as you make your way in the san mateo 64 degrees in oakland, 59 and cooling off in san francisco. nice weather to come. but a change in the forecast. have more on that in a few minutes. all right. thank you, lawrence. well, we've all been noticing. if you've been out and about the changes in the traffic pattern patterns on bay area. >> freeways, especially and specifically on the bay bridge today we some of the kron four's, grant lotus. he joins
8:20 pm
us live in the studio too. >> tell us more well, as as we all know, some of us have been going to work in person this whole time. so many people haven't been that is changing and you really as you drive this past 13 months, you start to notice the difference, especially recently a lot more traffic. this is the heavy lifter have all the bay area bridges, the approach to the bay bridge toll plaza at the bay bridge. >> generally now running at about 90% of prepandemic levels on weekdays. this obviously a time lapse shot this is about 9 o'clock this morning. a lot of cars, some whole lot more than this time last year. commuters here, of course, heading into san francisco. and today we spoke with john goodwin from the metropolitan transportation commission who says the most detailed traffic data comes from bay area toll bridge us. >> as everybody will recall, traffic plummeted at that time bottomed out in early april
8:21 pm
twenty-twenty and then begin very steep climb. they continued right around the first of july that plot has given way to a new rise that began in late february and continues to this day. >> and here you can see exactly would. john was talking about last april. you go back here. the daily average. just. >> plummeted. the number of vehicles crossing the bay bridge dropping below 70,000 per day, almost unheard of and over the past year, traffic. yeah. pretty sharp ascent here over the summer. things kind of went back to normal. you remember december january we had that surge. but yes, still this whole time. well, under what we had been used to seeing it last month with the highest average number of cars since the pandemic started here, just under a 120,000 still a few days left in april
8:22 pm
right now. but the numbers we do have right now show that traffic keeps increasing and really with people getting vaccinated. no reason to think that trend is going to stop this data. all focuses on the bay bridge. but we are seeing traffic increases across the bay area. we have a live look here at the san mateo bridge switch. obviously that is not. but you need gas if you don't have an electric car. if you want to cross the san mateo bridge. the bay bridge all the bridges for more info on the numbers so you can always there's the san mateo bridge. you see you know, cars just kind seeing along not bumper to bumper, but it is 8.22. said this isn't the height of the rush hour. but a whole whole lot more action. then what we had late april in 2020. so good to see things kind of getting back to normal a little bit. for now. ken catherine, we'll send it back to you. all right. grant, thank you very much. as traffic does pick up. and the summer approaches. more drivers will be on the road.
8:23 pm
and that means. >> you could have to take some extra steps to find fuel during the shelter-in-place orders last year. the demand for gasoline dropped that resulted in a decrease in gas tank truck deliveries. well, according to aaa, that has not affected the gas supply. instead it's affected the delivery of gas to gas stations. so well, you may find a few stations that are out of gas or low on gas. you shouldn't run into any serious problems filling up your tank. >> there is ample gasoline available throughout the united what we're seeing is that a delivery issue? that's caused some delays in particular markets. only senator around a few select gas but it's not a market white issue. and so if but you get your viewers, they run into a situation where there's either low or no fuel at particular gas station there. typically is gas at other locations.

8:31 pm
>> good evening. will tonight's address looked a little bit different from years past. not only was the chamber westpac because of the pandemic. but for the first time, the vice president and the speaker of the house sitting behind the president were both women. >> good to be back in his first joint address to congress and on the eve of his one 100th day in office. president joe biden says america is on the move again, americans always get out. >> today. that's what we're doing. america's rising the president called his administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic a success after i promised we get 100 million covid-19 vaccine shots. the people's arms and a 100 days. we will have provided over 220 million covid shots in game and laid out his priorities for the next 100 days. we have a real chance time root out systemic racism that plagues america
8:32 pm
american lives in other ways. the chance to live or real equity. good jobs, good schools, affordable housing. but in order to move his agenda forward. the president will need the support of republicans. we need more senate republicans join the overall majority of democrats, college close loopholes require background check purchases guns. this was the pitch you just heard it again. >> but our nation is starving. for more than him to play the 2 south carolina senator tim scott deliver the republicans rebuttal. >> criticizing the president for not focusing enough on the issues. he says americans care about policies and progress. that brings us. >> closer together. but 3 months in. the actions of the president and his party or pulling us further and further apart. and tomorrow is officially the president's one 100th day in office in the white house says he'll be spending the day in georgia with the first lady attending
8:33 pm
a drive-in rally in atlanta live in washington. i'm anna wiernicki. back to you. >> all right, anna, thank you very much. will the presidents speech featured and aggressive agenda being presented with an as we keep saying, a pretty unusual backdrop tonight to get some insight into the address. we welcome san jose state political science lecturer donna crane. thanks for joining same question that we just asked a reporter in washington. what stood out for you? >> well, what stood up for me president biden's comfort in that space. of course he's a veteran of capitol hill, but also, you know, his political dna is really imprinted with with the qualities of asked ability and empathy. and those really came through tonight especially in a small in a smaller crowd. it just felt a little bit into it. and he was clearly comfortable in that space. and with this agenda, that's what stood out to me in terms of town. >> donna supposedly tells us
8:34 pm
speechwriters that he wants to sound like he's talking to relatives. so i think that probably worked. donna, let me ask, you know, he did kind of reference republicans a few times sometimes in a friendly manner, sometimes not so much. they accuse him of not really doing anything to reach out to try to work with family. is that going to be a continuing problem. >> i think they're going to continue to make that case. i don't think reaches people beyond their political base. i think it's it doesn't square with the political persona that we all see in joe biden. he's a pretty agreeable guys. pretty easy going pretty friendly enjoys a reputation of being really bipartisan on the in his tone if not in his policies. i don't think it still to this squares with what we see in him. i would say secondarily, you know, the republican party of late has been pretty sharp edge. pretty confrontational. i would say
8:35 pm
since the mid 90's and newt gingrich. and so if the party doesn't have a lot of credibility to bring forth what makes that accusation? that said, i think they're really struggling to find a place where they can really get up told against him. >> all they need senator manchin from west virginia. he seems to be the key player in all of this with a 5050, senate and he's a definitely a more conservative democrat, some even wonder if he really is a democrat, how agreeable you think senator mansion is to all of these proposals by president biden. >> to be joe manchin at this moment in time. you can you can pretty much write your own recipe for any bill you want. >> i think he's amenable big things. but i think he's going to have do 2 first of all, he's got to move through his own domestic politics right. he comes from a state that is overwhelmingly republican. so he needs to be careful there. and second, i think he's going
8:36 pm
to extract some actual concessions. i think there will be some real negotiations and some sort of being caught trying negotiations. i think we should expect to see both of those happened in the coming weeks. >> you know that the issued a response tonight, but so did a at a branch of progressive said had someone responding to the president. it does kind of suggest that he has that pressure from various corners. they're nothing at his heels to. >> yeah, that's right. and at least so far he's been pretty successful in consolidating the that becomes harder to do the more time that he lapses and the closer we get to mid terms as well. if democrats starting start getting numbers back that look like they're in trouble and mid terms, which is a very traditional thing to then i think we might see those problems be cummings. asked are baited. but i do think president biden is getting a tailwind from a set of circumstances and that is,
8:37 pm
you know, the country just went through a year when the federal government basically left us to our own devices, kind of abandoned us. and so there is a real that i see in the country and the polling backs this up and my own conversations with my students backs this that the public is in a move to hear what can government do for me right i'd like to see some new stuff. we've been neglecting some things. i'd like us to do better so the public's pretty open to this message of more government services and even more government intervention. i think. yeah. and to that point, donna, i think that seems to be what the president was trying to do in this speech to was to direct. >> all of issues toward the middle class or those who are trying to get into the middle class. this for big this there was a lot of talk about just improving daily americans lives. and of course that's going to take taxes. but he's saying that's not going to take middle-class taxes. you have to earn $400,000 or more
8:38 pm
to see your taxes go up. how effective will that be? >> well, i could not agree more with that analysis as i was observing closely and then watch the speech a second time. i notice adept he was at taking issues that are either technical or have been seen as a league issues, right. like of climate change, for example, and re framing them in in the merits and the values of the working class. and you know, this is this is a lot harder to do than it looks and he's exceedingly good at it. so we'll see if that kind of but he really did remove bring forth that political persona of somebody whos whose there speaking on behalf of the working person. you know, talks about the single mom who gets vaccine that can go back to work and he talks you know, we building unions and those kinds of things. and talk about climate change in this frame to its was very, very well done. i saw yeah. instead of having a winter been built in china
8:39 pm
could be built in pittsburgh. he said in that just i mean, it seems like strikes right at the heart of the year. >> average american worker donna crane from tennessee state university. thanks as always for your analysis. we appreciate it. >> still ahead, as india's facing another big covid surge. some bay area residents are volunteering to try to are volunteering to try to provide help. i was hit by a car and needed help. are volunteering to try to provide help. i called the barnes firm. that was the best call i could've made. i'm rich barnes. it's hard for people to know how much their accident case is worth. let our injury attorneys help you get the best result possible.
