crystal clear. it is cold out there, though. we have frost advisories in effect for the inland. the east bay as well as across the inland, north bay through 09:00am this morning. you can see a lot of cities being affected by this, including one o ones corridor and 6 80's corridor through the east bay. all these areas at least temperatures falling below freezing, especially in rural areas. we'll a few 30's on the map to start this morning, including in concord, petaluma as well as nevado in san anselmo. just another morning to bundle up as you've gotten used to the past few mornings breanna. john, thank you for that. all right. let's start of the bay bridge to tracking your traffic this morning. it's pretty light. >> a little under 9 minutes to make your way into the city at this hour. the san mateo bridge heading across towards the peninsula. little under 30 minutes as you're traveling there along highway 24 westbound west of the called a caught lane in oakland. that is where i do see an accident there. so we'll keep a close eye on that doesn't like. it's causing much of a delay richmond. sandra fell bridge to traveling across their little under 9 minutes. and
5:02 am
the golden gate bridge. about 20 minutes traveling from the north bay into the city will have more weather and traffic coming up. for now, let's get back to the top story. speaking of traffic, 48 million more than 48 million people are expected to hit the roads. >> and drive during this thanksgiving holiday. that's a whole lot of people whole lot of people. i can say we're not going to be those people. this is bay area drivers deal with near record high gas prices kron four's. the seven's is live in burlingame with the details. good morning, ali. >> yeah, good morning. what you know, even though we got that announcement yesterday president biden that they'll be releasing 50 million barrels of oil. it's really not going to affect the gas prices quite yet for this for this holiday will help out in in the future in week. so you can see here at the at the chevron. it is for the cheapest gas and then 5.29 at the highest in burlingame. so
5:03 am
that is kind of where we're going. but we do get we do have some graphics for you so you can see what the average for ice in some of the cities around us. and of course, san francisco has the top billing up. >> $4 and $0.88 a gallon but other, you know, cities like oakland, san jose in sandra fell not too far behind. just maybe $0.10 difference possibly on the average there. we also in los angeles being for 71, is reading, of course, up north. it's going to be the cheapest which is that for 67. and you can see the rest for 77 in for 72. so really making that the average around here in the bay area is around $4.77. so if you have like a tank of gas. you might wanna. >> drive a further away to see if you can save at least a quarter here and there it might help just a little bit. i know at 1, one time where i on driving up one time. i was
5:04 am
able to find. gas for 3.99. so that was a really big savings says sometimes you can get lucky and and hit a gas station that's going to be a little cheaper. quite a significant cheaper just outside the bay area. but in the meantime, this is the prices that we are dealing with. it's just kind of like that we have to deal with because right now it is really a worldwide kind of a problem where there's like a whole lot of the man and not a whole lot of supply. and this is why prices are so of so high right now. but. you know, go electric. i have an electric car says sometimes i don't even have to worry about i feel i have a full tank of a every morning just plugging in and it is a little cheaper than gas. so. but the for the for those who have gassed. cars vehicles. these are the prices you're going to be
5:05 am
dealing with. but hopefully that will start to decline in the future weeks back to you guys. and these prices are more than push more people to go electric just like you. you know, thank you very much. >> and if you're planning driving today. well, you're going to want to leave early because according to triple a the worst time to drive in the bay area is between 4, 06:00pm today and the worst commute will be on the 80 eastbound right between the 5.80 split and dam road triple a says the traffic on that route is going to be nearly 300% worse than normal. so 3% increase in congestion. triple a says that overall the best time to drive today is after 09:00pm. if you can do that and then tomorrow the worst time to drive will be between noon and 3 is everybody's trying to get to their last-minute destinations. the best time to drive. it is 11:00am and then on friday you want to avoid driving between one and 4 and then try and hit the road if you can before 11:00am basically the earlier the better and over the weekend, the best times to hit the road or all before noon. so keep
5:06 am
that in mind. maybe can plan around that all in addition to the traffic. another big story we've been following. police in fremont say. >> they're stepping up patrols and retail centers across that area. this comes after the recent smash-and-grab robberies at stores all across the bay area. city officials say they've been in contact with several businesses and people can expect to see more patrol cars in certain areas. if you're al and you're wondering that's why now the 9 people charged in connection to a series of smash-and-grab robberies in san francisco could be a range. could be arraigned in court as early as today. investigators saw on 9 people connected to those break-ins and robberies at the louis baton store. the dispensary in the walgreens. sfpd says as many as 40 people smashed windows at that louis the talks to on friday night. this was one of several locations targeted in the same night. we've also learned areas in the soma district were also targeted friday night.

5:08 am
