prescience, availability, and what is doing is increasing the availability of jobs. jobs building electric cars like the one i drove the gm, detroit in the gym, factoring detroit last week for the hundreds of thousands of folks who brought one of those electric cars. they're going to save $800.00 to a $1000.00 and fuel costs this year. and we're going to put those savings within reach more americans and create jobs, installing solar panels, batteries, electric keep pumps, jobs, making those clean power generating devices. and by the way, the plane, these technologies for each home where they're installed, it's going to say folks, additional hundreds of dollars in energy cost every year. so let's do that. let's be climate change. with more extensive innovation and opportunities, we can make our economy and consumers less vulnerable to these sorts of price spikes when we do that. and finally, even as we meet a him, we need to work out this challenge is important to maintain perspective about where
10:31 pm
our economy stands today. the fact is, america has a lot to be proud of. we're experiencing a stronger 2nd. i'm a recovery in the world. even after accounting for inflation, our economy is bigger, and i found that more money in their pockets than they did before. the pandemic in america is the only major economy in the world that can say that it's just of the grid and determination of the american people as well as a unique approach to this recovery. and our focus on rebuilding our economy from the bottom up in the middle out, not the top down. because of that approach. we're the only leading economy in the world are household income and the economy as a whole or stronger than they were before the pandemic kit. let me close this. this thanksgiving. we have so much to be grateful for vaccines that are effective, safe and free. promising new treatments providing for hope that we can bring an end
10:32 pm
to the worst tragedies of this crisis. record job growth, the strongest recovery in the world. and most of all the chance to be together again with the people we love on thanksgiving. as you gather together with your family, this nice give me i want you to know how grateful i am to serve as your president. and i promised you that i'll never stop working to address your family's needs. and together we're going to confront challenges that we face them are going to face them honestly. and that will keep building this economy around hardworking folks who built this country. happy thanksgiving and god bless you and may god protect your troops from i'm heading to a food kitchen to serve meals right now. thank you for your time and effort and plenty of time to talk to the president button there, announcing the plan to release the oil reserves say, well, he said the coordinated global action on what it was and would help a deal with
10:33 pm
a lack of supply that has been affecting gas prices and household bills and he also said that it was, it wouldn't solve the problem over night, it would make a difference. so what has correspond, kimberly how kit joins us live. so very much kind of geared towards the consumers. this, this speech wasn't it. yeah, there's no question that it was, but it was also a speech that was geared towards those naysayers that say the president is making a mistake by releasing the strategic petroleum reserves. what the criticism has been, is that this might resolve the issue in the short term and lead to some, in the immediate future, lower gas prices. but ultimately, because the issue of supply and demand globally has not been resolved, that this will drive the prices up. so what you heard there is the president not only saying, look at this is a global problem, but the fact that he's also saying that this will work out in the end one point to
10:34 pm
know. and all of this is that with regard to the release of these reserves, the president isn't just releasing it all over night. in fact, there's going to be one portion done in the 1st 3 months and then another portion in the coming months. and this he believes is going to allow for this kind of staggered approach that will ensure as the supply catches up to the demand as a result of people turning the economy back on. due to the coven pandemic, that this will resolve those issues. and the prices will stabilize at a lower rate. that's what this bind administration is counting on. one other announcement in there of importance, and it really affects domestic consumers, though, is the point that the president was making that he believes oil and gas companies are exploiting the situation. and really he accuse them essentially of price gouging of illegal behavior, and that they are now seeing lower rates and the oil supply, not passing that on to the consumer. so the president announcing there that he will
10:35 pm
be investigating that. and also making an appeal to the american public look, things are going to get better be patient. i've got this, i will have to see whether that helps the president's approval ratings. because right now, americans are getting a little frustrated. not only is the price of gas high, but also the price of other consumer goods you heard and they're talking about the supply issue in how he believes that's result. and he's saying, look, i'll get this to just get him to back up on the, on what you mentioned there, but the, the federal trade commission to look into this, how quickly can something, not that come to a conclusion about whether the, the oil and gas companies are not passing on any kind of savings that they, they're making from the drop in the oil put there the trade possible. well, i mean it's, it's not usually a quick process, but the president seems to have made it a priority. so, oh, what the concern is, is that this may be, or rather not the concern, but one of the things that might happen as a result of this announcement is that some of that behavior will be self corrected
10:36 pm
almost immediately. and that's sometimes why the white house will do these kinds of things. but there's no question. there's already been a pattern in recent weeks and months and for that the president to seems to have his experts on. and this could even lead to prosecution, which of course could take some time. but what we're seeing again is the president really using all the tools in his tool box to try and address this to alleviate some of the pressure consumers as quickly as he can. can be how can thank you very much indeed. which was young is that chief investment officer at the bison interest investment firm. he joins us live from houston, texas by skype. thanks very much for being with us. what, what did you make of the, the statement and, and do you think this is going to work this strategy? well, i thought it was remarkable because there's something the federal government could do very easily to lower gasoline prices, which would be to lower the federal gasoline tax. so other than that, no, i think it was kind of remarkable and astonishing listening to the president speak and say things that are almost the exact opposite of what you're talking basic
10:37 pm
economics classes. so i mean, in terms of how they fit, this will have only all producing companies. he's also trying to get them to release will release more supplies. that something that's likely to happen. yes. so i think it's really interesting because on one hand, the president of the united states is going to other countries and asking them to produce more oil. but at the same time, he's having his policies here in the us. cancel or delay pipelines and cancel lease sales that will lead to development of oil and gas here in the us as well as dramatically increasing the regulatory burden here in the u. s. so it's a very strange thing to hear him say, my policies aren't affecting things when people here are saying, hey, like, actually biden is having more of an effect on oil prices and gasoline prices than opec. and what about the point though? that chair, the price of wholesale oil has fallen 10 percent that he made. he made that point
10:38 pm
and said that hasn't been passed on by they, by people who are serving into the pumps. is that fair? i think it's indicative of just like policy advisors to the president, not understanding what's happening. so what he was describing is fifa 1st in 1st out. so of course, it always takes time in both directions for gasoline prices to follow oil prices, both down and up. so it was amazing to hear that, but really i just always have admin on, on the home, get a gas companies aren't exactly renowned for, for being so generous with, with the consumers. are they, they, they are well known for making some money. so that might, might be a fair assumption to think that there's from people making money unfairly, harrison that actually, i mean, not really and sorry to argue with you about it. but if you look at the oil and gas industry, i mean most of these companies, either many of them went bankrupt last year, or they've had many unprofitable years over the last 10 or 15 years. so just that's just factually not true. and then if you look at how these prices are set,
10:39 pm
in many cases, there's many gas stations buying gas for many different competing refiners. and one thing that you guys correspondent, i think maybe didn't fully appreciate. there's been many federal trade commission investigations in the u. s. over the last 100 years, and none of them have found, especially with gasoline prices, any sort of price fixing or any sort of activity like that. so both from a financial history perspective as well as a investigation perspective, it just seems like the advisors and the policy is a little bit. they're just out of touch, i think from history as well as from facts on the ground. what about what the says about the relationship between at the white house and saudi arabia, for example, is that's likely to improve after this, when you reckon, ah, i mean, that's hard to say. i think unfortunately that that relationship has been challenged for a little while. and i think this is just another, i thought it was really out of touch for the president to push saudi arabia, for example, to produce more oil. i'm,
10:40 pm
when he's not pushing americans and american companies are encouraging them to produce more oil as well. so i don't know, i think this is probably confusing from a saudi perspective. it's hard, hard for me to know exactly, but it definitely doesn't seem like an olive branch from america to saudi arabia. josh young, thank you very much indeed. feel schwartz on the subject. thank you. into national monetary fund has reached a deal with pakistan to bring back a $6000000000.00 funding program at people in the country of feeling the pinch as inflation rises and the economy worsens. the price of goods is now hit a 70 year high, and the local currency keeps weakening against the dollar. some a binge of aid has more from ms. i'm a bad about all the vendors have increased, but the number of buyers is decreasing. used clothes and shoes are sold at this roadside market, which has been here for decades. but business is not what it used to be. what i want to say ya, body of, i have been selling use shoes for a long time. it is only this year when prices have showed up so high that there are

10:42 pm
. the 9.7 percent in the last 3 years, the price is of basic food items that's not rocketed. aquino, of sugar now cost $0.90 instead of 35 liter of milk, cost $0.70 instead of $55.00. and the basic staple a bag of flour is at $3.00 instead of 2. the government says the price of wheat in pakistan is half of what it costs in neighboring india and bangladesh. and it blames a global increase in oil prices for the surgeon, fuel and electricity charges. currently, your country is in the face of hyperinflation. there are many reasons behind. it was one of the most important reasons. and the most visible reason that one can identify is the incompetency of our government. she's not the case says the prime minister, imminent hon, blames the previous governments for the current economic troubles with a brochure. your hum, buy guess i'm happy to announce the biggest welfare program in pakistan's history. yes, there is inflation in the country, but we should also look at what the government is doing to alleviate the situation
10:43 pm
. but near the prime ministers, house buyers and sellers in his, i'm about used items, market say the incomes are no much for buckets on inflation. some of the job down to 0 is love about temperatures continue to drop. europe's energy crisis shows no sign of ending prices are up and concerns about supplies. russia continue, but another major oil and gas supply wants to fill that gap. gym coffee reports from us by johns capital back, who this other bay johns economy is fuel by its gas and oil production. the country now has that on europe's energy crisis. it says it has a supply to easier it's growing demand. we are already just substantial. if not very serious player in the turkish market in georgia, a market in the u. markets of greece, italy, and bulgaria. but we have huge interest from the side of the others from the
10:44 pm
eastern european countries from the broken countries from central european countries. much of its natural gas supply is exported through what's called the southern gas cory door, which runs from the caspian sea through parts of georgia, turkey and then to europe. as our b, john's production of small compared to big players in the energy game. but with the gas corridor, it is ready to carry out their resources like gas from took mattress down to the you going after a bigger piece of the market. by increasing its energy production, other by john could bring in more investments and gain political leverage in its region. but this could also press and its relationship with russia, a major life. and one of the world's biggest energy suppliers. as or by john says it is not competing with moscow, but some say there could be geopolitical complications from the existing monopolist
10:45 pm
ec supplier. also, as i said in the beginning, uses it's supplies of energy to your for geopolitical reasons for geo political inputs. we see that right now, right now when russia has not delivered gas to gas storage facilities in europe throughout the summer and has decided not to do what it normally does, which. ready is increase supplies to europe when you're asked for more? because gus problem in russia are trying to pressure the european union, their concerns russia, disputes with ukraine and other european partners could these fabulous energy supply? russia provides about 45 percent of the european union, natural gas, ne, but demand is growing, and it appears russia can or want to keep up. the look at what is happening in terms of energy security and some fluctuations of energy prep provision of energy sources and just apply to some countries in europe for example. and as a bridge,
10:46 pm
i'm being able to deliver its natural gas to europe enables these countries. this consumers to access to alternative source of energy. european leaders, fear to energy crisis may get worse before it gets better. as john hope it will turn into an opportunity that will secure its rule in the market. sina console the back to us or by john large parts of southern india. bracing for more floods, while many remain stranded after days of heavy rain. thousands of people across several states have had to move to evacuation centers. india correspondent, elizabeth corona reports the southern city of bengal, lewd who has received more than $400.00 times the amount of rain, usually dance in november. flooding has led to the deaths of at least 24 people in the state of cut, malika, and thousands have been stranded. emergency workers using boats to rescue people
