8:00 am
our morning hours that you've got to watch out for. as that's when we're going to be looking at some really cold temperatures outside right now it's beautiful. and crystal clear. look at this morning as you venture out to enjoy it. just keep the jackets close a hand. we're still under frost advisories for parts of the inland east bay as well as across parts of the in the north bay through 09:00am this morning. these areas right here are seeing some temperatures down in the 30's. still. conquered. you just move down to the 30's or at 41 degrees. but san anselmo novato in petaluma right at 36 novato. just moving up to 39. so the sun is already doing a number on some of our temperatures already upwards a bit and that means, well, we've got some 60's on the way. not too long from now. i'll tell you more about those. still ahead. breana john, thank you for that. traffic has been really light for the most part as a traveling from the east bay into the city. a little under. >> 10 minutes for your drive time there. the san mateo bridge across towards the peninsula a little under 30 minutes as you're traveling. let's head over get a look at
8:01 am
the richmond sandra fell bridge traveling at a richmond a little under 9. the only accident i see out there this morning. if you're traveling along in the nation. this is 7 80 westbound in terrain and military west street. it looks like there is a traffic collision and an overturned vehicle. so we're going to keep a close eye on that. but 20 minutes we have the golden gate bridge from the north bay into the city james. all right. let's get back to our holiday travel story. that is the big story this morning. one of the busiest travel days of the year. >> with more than 50 million people expected to take to the skies for thanksgiving. yeah. a lot of people fly in today is going to be one of the busiest at the oakland airport. and that's we're camila. barco has been live all morning talking to travelers. everyone hopefully excited to be heading out to see their loved ones come to light. >> we get excited is an understatement since we've been here this morning at oakland international airport we see waves of people just come in and check for their flights. and here you're looking tsa people going
8:02 am
through tsa. this morning. the line, as you can see study officials tell me right now, however, is the busiest time for them. and i want to emphasize this is the line for tsa for southwest airlines. only now officials expect nearly a 170,000 passengers to travel through oakland airport during the thanksgiving period between today and sunday. they're going to see twice as many people check in for flights compared to last year. and these numbers are fairly close to what they saw before the pandemic started, but they're still covid protocols in place. so employees are wiping down the most touch places airport and everyone is required to wear a mask. now many people stayed home last year because of covid. i know some people can relate thanksgiving is looking different for a lot of people across the country. however, as last year they said. but this time around melanie hayward resident tells me it's going to be best thanksgiving ever. and here is
8:03 am
>> it's really exciting. and my sister keep that should never see me again. that's how she felt because of the i said i don't know what you felt like that because, you know, you have to have faith that. well, so we're really close. but we both live along. so now we'll be together for the first time in a money is headed at to idaho to go see her sister. as you can see she is very excited to be with her sister once again and rayna. james, i want to put some things into perspective. >> last year. 900,000 people went through tsa on november 22nd now one year later this past monday alone. 2 million people went through tsa. so everyone is headed that not everyone. but most people are headed out for the holidays are going to spend it with their loved ones. as you can see, melanie smith is visiting her sister after a very difficult year for many
8:04 am
people. but as you can see, many people are excited to travel once again for thanksgiving to you and camila. got to ask you to because we've been talking about for look at what do you typically look forward to most on the thanksgiving plate. nobody's look at what you've taken. second helpings >> well, i look forward to turkey, of course, but i think being in this industry, a lot of people know that we work it during the thanksgiving. so appreciate any hope it's i will take very much. and hopefully everybody enjoy nice. >> tomorrow depending on where you're going. and if you're driving. >> you're going to be well, you're going to be whole lot of others to on the lot of people. a lot of people, more than 48 million people are expected hit the roads and drive over this thanksgiving to see their loved ones. they are long time since we've seen. yeah, you're going to pay a little more get there because obviously here in the bay area. we're dealing with record high gas prices and is part of our team coverage. we've got to talk about that too. prefers the only 7 live
8:05 am
for us in burlingame with a look. >> at the pump there and yoli. yeah. pushing 5 bucks or higher and a lot of states. >> yeah, that's right. this is the is the chevron over in burlingame and there's really never a whole lot of cars in this just because look at the prices, as you said, for 99, you know, for supreme 5.29 that a of money. it became for which is a record high here really nationwide. it's a it's a record high of. so let me just give you an idea of what you're going to be facing if you're going out on the road and at all across california. this is according to triple a. >> they gave us some numbers. now, this is the average in all the different cities, not in san francisco. the average is ranking as the top dollar of for 88 oakland for 79 and you have san jose at 4.80, in samara fell up for 88. so there are only like maybe 8 or
8:06 am
$0.10 difference. if you get anything cheaper than san francisco. this hit south. so if you go down to los angeles. it's also for 71 not that much different from here reading that to me was more surprising because usually when you go up north usually see lower prices in gas. but this is still up for 71, which is still really high. and of course, you can see all the other once in 7 pews in sacramento, everything quiet. hi. you know, i've tried talking to some people about, you know, these prices in their travel. and tell you, people are occupied. they do. they weren't very friendly this morning to talk to because they have so much on your mind. and i know that the holidays kind of stresses people out. so they just have to surrender to some of these prices because if they want to get to where they want to get too. they're just going to have to pay for the gas. but there >> and that is. because we did
8:07 am
we actually plateau on the high prices. so that means that prices will start to go down. >> you know, it's not going to be significant, but you will see over the weeks coming weeks that it will go down and also with biden releasing 50 barrels of crude oil that's supposed to help out a little bit too. which is again, it's just going nudge it just a little bit. and we're talking maybe about to be to $0.20. you know, a gallon cheaper. but every little bit >> a little bit of good news that you will be seeing some prices go down. maybe making it a little easier for you when it comes to christmas because that's when we'll start really seen the different prices. back to you guys. he only has to ask you this question. you know, you have to drive from story to story. so where's the best place to get some gas where you've got to fill up or use it for the love >> well, you know, i i everywhere. yes. you know, hit
8:08 am
me everywhere. so i just tried to look for the cheapest gas around me and just across the street from the is at their act for for 49. so, you know, we see some people coming in on have there's already quite a few people there to get, you know, because it's at 4.49. and when you compare it to 2 for 19 i i mean, that's you know, a $0.50. they say least, when you've got a 30 gallon, you know, tank. that's going to that's going to be significant. wow. all right. and then before we go, what you're gonna have on the thanksgiving plate. what are you looking forward to most tomorrow. >> love give her a second school. the only thank you very much. thank you for and of course, if you are going to be a planning on driving today. well, you want to leave early. that's the rule of thumb because triple a says the worst time.
8:09 am
>> to drive today here in the bay area is between 04:06pm, and the worst section of roadway. the worst commute is going to be eastbound 80 between the 5, 8, emerge and san dam road aaa saying traffic there's going to be about 300% worse than normal. so 3 times as bad aaa also says that overall the best time to drive to days after 09:00pm. so if you can see it leave later. that's best tomorrow. the worst time is between noon and 3 with the best time being before 11 and then friday. you want to avoid any time between one and 04:00pm again before 11:00am is the best and over the weekend just get out before noon. otherwise you're going to be stuck in a lot of traffic. some solid advice there. james. >> another big story we've been following. police in fremont say they're stepping up police patrols and retail centers. 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
8:10 am
patrol cars in certain areas. so if you see that, that's why the 9 people charged in connection to a series of smash-and-grab robberies in san francisco could be a rain in court as early as today. well, investigators say all 9 people are connected to break-ins and robberies. it. the louis baton store dispensary in a walgreens has said pd says as many as 40 people smashed windows at the louis baton store on friday night. this was one of several locations targeted that night. we've also learned areas in the soma district were also targeted friday night as well. >> we cannot we will not and we do not tolerate that kind of behavior in our city. the charges we everything from looting, grand theft burglary, possession of stolen property firearm possession commercial burglary and more. >> district attorneys from across the bay area met yesterday to discuss that that's happening across the area and whether that these in these incidents could be connected to other thefts.
8:11 am
>> well, legal analysts say that all bay area prosecutors are going to argue the same thing that these well organized thefts amount to a felony conspiracy charges. like what we're seeing temperatures could be chasing dean do because there is a law in california that says that anything that is less than $950 in value is only treated as a misdemeanor. >> a lot of these retail theft crews have become emboldened by it. decriminalization in our property crime laws. and i think that's why you're seeing this spring up all over the bay area because they recognize that at this point the prosecutors are a step behind them. >> and many business owners say that they're hiring extra private security now they're calling for a larger police presence during the holiday shopping season. we are seeing some changes in san francisco as a result of the smash and grab robberies. the city is now limiting car traffic around union square as just one measure to try and at least stop potential criminals from parking near their intended targets. the city is doing this every day from 6 in
8:12 am
the from 7 in the evening entil 6. the next morning, mayor london breed says this change might even stay in place pass the holidays. y> trying to look at ways in order to makes it a downtown shopping experience more safe for pedestrians because this is not just about stolen goods having the ability to shop without concern about a vehicle hitting you is really important. yes, san francisco police right now are stepping up patrols in union square city officials say that they're hoping. >> but last weekend smash-and-grab robberies won't detour people from coming out and getting their holiday shopping done. all right. also in the news. >> coming up on the kron 00:00am morning news health officials in the east bay are preparing now for a possible surge in covid cases. but they're hoping the vaccine will help prevent that. we'll talk about efforts try to get more shots out to people. plus president joe biden wants to tap into the country's 12 reserve to make gas prices a little bit cheaper. we talked
8:13 am
about that a bit yesterday. today we're hearing from some
8:14 am
8:15 am
>> well, here we are with the holidays are here and you might have to pay a little more money for your christmas tree this. yeah. >> both kinds the fake trees because shipping delays and then the real but you can blame the price hike on that for the weather and the cost of labor, right. that's right. nguyen has that story for us. i think everyone's feeling some of the.

8:17 am
tree shortage. many of the farmers up. there are. >> not selling their nobles in organs because of the south burned back that occurred. all of this combined, many farmers say they had no choice but to raise the price of their trees. i think if you look around. >> you'll still find some great values. but most the prices are going to be up at least a little bit. >> encouraging families to be patient this year as they go out to pick their trees. >> we're just asking, are you doing i'm doing a fake tree have been for a while because we have a whole families got allergies to. yeah. that's reason we didn't connect the dots until after a good number of years of just haven't colds coincidently every it will grocery outlet has like a little tree right now. it's a living tree. i will take a look it comes with a little ornaments. so you to do is take him a little pack it done. but on it's a real tree done 3 but it's still alive. i like always do a plug for haha
