1:00 pm
shoreline. adam: stung in the grocery aisle. with all monday prices hovering at eight year highs, there is threat to the price of granola bars. the surprising culprit. honeybee and who is getting stung. lori: we hope you stay with us. straight to the floor of the new york stock exchange and nicole petallides. stocks, bouncing back here after yesterday's sharp declines. >> right. we're see you now that the dow is up about 88 points here at the moment at 15,682. nasdaq and s&p holding up nice gains. nasdaq nice move but still down for the week up 1.4%. we got in the monthly jobs report, but first seemed like good news but you knew the labor participation rate is still at lows we haven't seen since 1978. here is a one-week chart for you as the dow and s&p working here to squeeze out gains for the week. we'll see whether or not they actually do that. we'll see if they actually gain the risks of snapping a fourth
1:01 pm
straight weeks of gains for the s&p 500. for the dow it will extend the to five straight weeks of gains. as i noted the nasdaq still on track for a little bit of weakness for this week overall. down about .2% to the downside. that is what we're looking at big picture. the job reports moved several sectors. insurance and financials were moving well. you had homebuilders going back. back to you. lori: nicole, thank you. adam: as nicole mentioned, the jobs report, it was some better than expected news out of the latest job numbers for october. but the picture is not all that rosy. peter barnes joins us from the white house to break down those numbers. >> adam, that's right. non-farm payrolls came out 200,000 during the october, the shutdown month. analysts were expecting consensus was 125,000. though the labor department, bureau of labor statistics says the government shutdown does not appear to have hit private
1:02 pm
sector employers very hard last% month. quote, no discernible impacts according to the head of the bureau but in a separate survey the unemployment rate rose to 7.3%, and it, as expected, up from 7.2 in september. in part because of the government shutdown. there is some different methodologies that were used in these two reports. the for your weekend reading, here is the six-page technical memo, and you can get it at the labor department website. go for it. now there were some revisions to august and septembers non-farm payroll numbers that totaled additional 60,000 jobs than previously reported. of course the report gave, ginned up the partisan battles here in washington. the president's top economist said that had there not been a government shutdown the jobs han better and he blamed republicans. take a listen. >> it's hard to look at any one indicator and, you know, infer
1:03 pm
exactly what happened but, i don't think there could be anyone who debates that the government shutdown and brinksmanship over the debt limit hurt the economy in the month of october and that we would have been able to do even better were it not for them but you know i also think we have a very resilient private sector in the american economy. >> but house speaker john boehner fired back and said, quote, while it's good sign that more americans found work last month than some predicted, wages are still stagnant and millions of families and workers are facing cancellation notices and higher premiums because of obamacare. adam and lori. adam: all right, peter, thank you very much. so the 204,000 jobs added last month blew away expectations but you won't believe how far off the biggest banks were with their estimates. deutsche bank and city group had the highest estimates at 130,000. barclays was in line with
1:04 pm
consensus, 125,000. our guest yesterday andrew from south bay research was on more bearish size, 104,000. jpmorgan with 175 -- 75,000 estimate, the actual number nearly tripled that. lori: get to the bottom of that. whopping 132,000 americans dropped out of the bore force last month. bringing labor participation rate to a 35-year low. at this pace people out of the workforce will surpass working americans in four years. how concerned should we be to america's shrinking workforce? let's pose that question to brian wesbury, first trust advisors. always great to see you. >> good to be here, lori. lori: share us your thoughts on why so many banks and economists missed mark with their forecasts? is it perhaps, why did they, maybe i put it to you this way, expect that the shutdown would have rippled into the private
1:05 pm
sector more than it really did clearly? >> yeah, well you know what? i'm one of those. i think it's a little unfair to pick on one month's number but nonetheless they did. they overestimated the impact of the shutdown. we kept saying the no way the shutdown will lead to recession. all this default talk wasn't going to cause the economy to crumble. so today i think, even though the numbers were above what we thought they would be, what banks thought they would be i think it's a really good sign a great sign that the private sector is doing as well as it is. what is interesting to me how political every economic number has become. so democrats wanted a weak number because of the shutdown. republicans wanted a weak number because of obamacare. lori: right. >> and we economists are caught in the firing line. lori: sure. >> everybody wants to shoot at us. lori: seems like companies are ignoring all due respect all of you and doing what they deem necessary saying you know what? our bottom lines are growing.
1:06 pm
earnings are pretty decent. people are spending money. pick it up, brian. >> well, that's true. we're getting into the weeds here but there's 140 million americans that have jobs. there are 300 million people in the country. missing by 100,000 isn't a lot, believe it or not. it's a very, teeny, teeny percentage. even if we were under a little bit this month, we might be over a little bit next month. the bottom line when you stretch it out, the private sector in the u.s. added jobs for 42 months in a row now. i call it a plow horse economy. because we should be adding a lot more than we are but we're still growing. believe it or not the entrepreneur in america, the business people as you just put them, the real, true, innovators and creators, they could care less about all this politics. they're writing new apps. they're inventing the cloud. they're figuring out how to frack wells better. that is really what is driving the economy.
1:07 pm
lori: you still do have 37.5% of americans not even looking for work. >> right. lori: i think you alluded to this earlier in our discussion. the labor participation rate at a 35-year low. that is extremely troubling yet we did see the number of non-farm payrolls added to the economy. how do you reconcile two parts of this report? >> i think there's a couple of things going on here, lori. the number one, the united states is aging. more and more people, the population 65 and older is going up about three times faster than the overall population. the baby boomers are getting old. i know it because i'm the tail end of them. but, that's one thing. on the other end, younger people are working less than they used to, partly because the minimum wage is so high and people find out not to hire unskilled labor. also because there's more people in college today. you can get college grants and loans a lot easier.
1:08 pm
so, people would rather go to college than work, i mean we all remember those days. and that, so on both ends. in the middle we have the longest unemployment benefits we've had in a long, long time. we pay a lot of people not to work. and the bottom line is, i think we're moveing a lot of people out of the labor force and that's showing up in the data. lori: brian, i need the take what it says about the fed and taper discussion. >> sure. lori: because ahead of the open, right when the report was released, saw awe big reaction, interest rates shooting up. they have backed down some. futures were way down obviously, well, market's up. that is reversed now. so explain the market reaction here. >> yeah. i mean the general drift here the better the economic data gets, right, lori, the more likely the fed is to sort of taper or end quantitative easing. and so the market gets very worried about that. i think in the long run, it is not qe driving profits or
1:09 pm
quantitative easing. it has really been the entrepreneur and innovation. so as a result, i think the fed can bo ahead and taper. i think the economy will still grow. one caution, i don't believe a lot of this tapering talk coming out of the fed right now. remember, that janet yellen has some enemies in the senate to so speak don't want her as heading the fed. they're trying to let this noise out about tapering to make it easier for her to be confirmed. lori: thank you. that is an interesting take. brian wesbury, have a good weekend. >> thank you. >> mention this quickly, swinging wildly in reaction to the jobs report. 10-year-year-old, benchmark, at 2.72%. that is the highest level in about a month. looking out the curve, 30 year yield also jumped on the news, there you go, 3.83, 4%. adam: gold dropped on the jobs
1:10 pm
data. fox news contributor phil flynn is on the floor of the cme. gold is at the lowest level in nearly a month. can we count on it staying there? >> not necessarily unless you count on the yields lori mentioned staying where they're at. the stock market don't really believe this jobs report totally. either that or they believe higher yields will slow down the stock market run. whatever it is, it is an unusual move but we're at lowest level we've seen in almost a month some they're under a lot of pressure. if you look at some of the other metals, silver is getting hit even harder than that right now. it is down 36 cents. so the metals as a group under a lot of pressure sure on the fears of tapering and stronger dollar. now the industrial metals they're hanging in there a little better. look at copper. where did my copper go? it is here somewhere. those are holding up pretty food in the range. platinum market and palladium
1:11 pm
are doing very, very strong. they're holding up better on industrial side than the precious metal side. adam: phil flynn, what you say is as good as gold but we'll say platinum. >> there you go. thank you. lori: other market moving news, criticizing french president hollande saying his policies will not substantially improve the economy. it is third-rating cut for france since he was elected in 2012. the news weighing on european stocks. cac 40 in paris seeing the biggest drop among the three major markets in europe. adam: sorry, so sorry. the president apologizes to people who lost their current health plans as a bipartisan team of senators looks to delay the individual mandate for one year. lori: meantime, new york fed president bill dudley blasting the big banks. ahead his scathing criticism on the deep-seeded cultural and ethical failures he says. adam: the day after we'll get a check on twitter's shares.

1:16 pm
yesterday's huge gains. however that being said the analysts seeing mixed, some putting sell ratings and thinking it is overvalued on anything above 40 bucks. so at 42.80 they still think it is too much. the other thing we're taking a look at is market cap. it is ranking pretty high in market cap. it would actually rate ahead of aetna, delta and kellogg if 2 were to stay at 44.90 range. it pulled back a little bit. it shows you, really came on the block. is it really that big? quick peek here at groupon. groupon coming out with their numbers. wider loss. sales that were below. they are working on a new website. up 7.7% for groupon. >> nicole petallides, thank you. >> thanks. lori: lawmakers across the aisle on capitol hill are calling for a one year delay of the obamacare individual mandate. as president obama apologizes to americans losing their current plans.
1:17 pm
rich edson joins from us washington, d.c. with the latest on this. rich? >> president obama says he is sorry. he promised americans his health care overhaul would insure they could keep their insurance plans. amid cancellation notices and sagging approval ratings the president apologized and says his administration will address these cancellations. spokesperson for house speaker john boehner writes, we are highly skeptical there is anything the president can do ad administrate tiffly to keep his pledge that would be both legal and effective. that is why he should work with congress to supports bipartisan legislation that fulfills his promise and allows insurance companies continue to with the plans so many americans like and can afford. there is bipartisan effort to delay the requirement that nearly every american have health insurance. senator mark kirk and democratic colleague joe manchin introduced a bill to delay the individual mandate for one year. the administration continues selling the law. hhalth and human services secretary kathleen sebelius is in atlanta where she addressed the botch the rollout of

1:36 pm
up 14%. what is happening is the u.s. is trying to meet global rising demand for corn that doesn't do anything from the corn that we eat, and was that eat it to our gas tank in the form of ethanol but they cannot keep up with demand. a big shocker for the market. soybean prices up $0.20, and wheat down. affecting a lot of the agricultural stock names as well. back to you guys. lori: thank you. adam: the bees are not as busy as they used to be. the population has declined by more than 30%, the united states is feeling the sting, especially farmers all the way to your grocery store. directodirector of the center fr pollination research at penn state joins us now. i would imagine the beehives are

1:38 pm
and other pollinators. adam: we keep on reading about the collapse of beehives. is this worldwide or just in the united states. what is causing it? >> it is pretty much worldwide. u.s. and europe it has beee documented mostly and also reports out of africa they are seeing declines in the population. basically in the u.s. over the last couple of years they found beekeepers are losing 30% of their hives every winter. it is economically devastating for the beekeepers. the problem is there is no single problem the bees are dealing with. it is a complex of factors. parasites and pesticides, lot of viruses are circulating in the populations and also nutrition, so they are like us, they need to have a good diet to be healthy, they need lots of

flowers and plants they can seed from. adam: if we are losing 30% of the colonies in the winter as opposed to the average which used to be 10%, is there not a way to build new colonies, doesn't have to do with gettingf thing? >> basically that is what the beekeepers have been doing. they are very resourceful. they have been able to deal with these 30% losses, but once it gets higher than that, becomes almost impossible to split enough colonies. adam: is the pace of collapse growing or is it stabilizing at 30%? >> it has been about 30% going up and down around that for the last five or six years. it does not seem to be getting any better but so far has not been getting any worse.
1:40 pm
adam: not getting worst is not sound like an optimistic way to end but it is better. thank you very much. >> thank you. lori: a love your point about the queen bee. there always has to be one. blasting big banks of a few choice words about the culture of the financial institutions. adam: paying diddley squat. freeride in moscow all in the name of good health and the winter olympics. when does your work end? does it end after you've expanded your business? after your company's gone public? and the capital's been invested? or when your company's bought anoer? is it over after you've given back?

1:55 pm
we make sure we are the best place for that sample. lori: are they charging you for those samples are just an advertising mechanism to get the word out? >> think of us more as marketing and retail company. they think of us as a great place to put a sample out there because before you never knew who was getting the sample and did not know how it was turning into a sale. with those we know who is getting it, the customer paying and buying it. lori: will they ask a come back the full-size product? >> yes, they do. half will buy the full-size version of the product they sample. lori: where do you stand now with the financials, are you profitable? >> as you mentioned we have not financed in a few years. we have always been laser focused on building a big business that can be a standalone business but we will continue to expand on growth.

better than expected jobs report. not so fast. lindsey piegza stearn agee economist says the devil is in the details. which details in particular? she will tell us in a moment. adam: it comes to a presidential apology. he is sorry to health place market participants. at the same time some in congress are pushing to delay the registration penalty. the latest on the obamacare drama. >> don't bring out the light say per yet. delays in release of "star wars vii." that means fans and investors not so happen. first top of the hour. let's get you updated on markets. for that we go to nicole petallides on floor of the new york stock exchange. we have a nice rally with the dow up 100 points. >> right, not too far off session
2:01 pm
nasdaq is up 1% and s&p 500 up one full percentage point. right now we're seeing dow and s&p clocking in week to date gains. nasdaq is still down for the week. that being said we're watching financial sector doing so well. financials have been leading the way. there is obviously expectation of fed tapering. that really boosted financials and also some of the insurers like metlife. look here quickly at jpmorgan. they are saying they will cut jpmorgan. they will cut 15,000 in the retail unit. moving to electronics from mobile deposits, online accounts, teller machines, fewer people in the branches. adam: nicole petallides. thank you. the october jobs report easily beating estimates and adding 204,000 non-farm payroll positions during the month. lindsay piegza, stern agree
2:02 pm
economist says, quote, thh devil is in the details. this jobs report further muddles the for further fed policy. good to see you you. >> thanks for having me. adam: which devil in the details do we need ton aware. >> that was quite impressive, at 204,000 by far beating estimates of 22 -- 120,000. what this does, muddles the waters. it has very little improvement in longer term trend. we're very same point at the start of the year and clear weakness throughout the past 12 months. >> i understand the weakness. what is confusing in a lot of people, in my hometown, the participation rate, is at 35-year low. explain to me how we can have fewer people taking part in the workforce and have a positive jobs report? >> well, we're still seeing positive job creation but when
2:03 pm
we talk about the participation rate, that is more of a reflection the decline in unemployment rate. remember there are two different surveys, the establishment survey and the household survey. we saw a decline in the labor force by over 700,000. but decline in household employment by even more. that is where we saw the .1 increase in the unemployment rate. taking a step back and broader picture decline unemployment rate since the start of the year at 8% that is part of reflection of millions of americans dropping out of the labor force. rather than reflection of putting americans back into the labor force. adam: who is dropping out? baby boomers that are retiring or some other age group. >> that is so interesting. a lot of report say, these people dropping out they are in the offs, near retirement age that is actually not true. participation rate for 55 and older that is increasing. where we're seeing majority of dropouts is 25 and 45. we assume these individuals with several potential income earning
2:04 pm
years still left will eventually move back into the labor force but at this time they view conditions as very poor and they have opted not to look for a employment at this time. adam: so if we're watching 25 to 45-year-olds dropping out, i imagine folks at federal reserve are saying, something you can't say on prime-time television? >> i think you're very right. they're looking at the decline in the unemployment rate in the context of the broader economy and the context of the broader conditions of the labor market. so the fed is looking at that decline and saying well, you know what? it is really not a true reflection what we're seeing happen in the labor market. if we look at augmented unemployment rate and includes part-time work and discouraged workers, that paints a much more dismal picture and increases from 13.6 to 13.8 in the most recent october report. adam: given what you just said, anybody who expects tapering in december should not put money on the table, they would be wrong, correct? >> i think the fed is very much in the position of they're going
2:05 pm
to wait and see. remember they don't want one or two months of plus 200,000 non-farm payrolls. they want consecutive, consistent growth. not meaning two out of the past six months but six consecutive months of very strong numbers. so i suspect the fed will wait until 2014. adam: all right, lindsey, thank you very much for joining us from minneapolis. >> thank you. lori: big news in the commodities pit today. everybody reacting to the crop report. u.s. corn production will set a record this year but growing global demand will drive down inventories according to the usda. sandra smith joins from us the pits of the cme with today's trade. the other important factor we skipped the last crop report because of the shutdown. >> that was a huge deal not only for traders that missed out on the monthly report that does move the markets but if you're a farmer you will not know how to hedge your current position. also not going to know if you're a restaurant chain looking for food prices. there was so much uncertainty when the the usda didn't release
2:06 pm
the crop report for first time in 14years. we're getting decent reaction in the market to this crop report. you will see corn prices moving up by a percent. soybean prices up a couple of percent. wheat prices moving up. we get a report from the government, this year's corn harvest will be largest ever, record harvest, prices go up. contrary to what you think. it wasn't as big of a new record as the market were anticipating. they were anticipating 14 billion bushels. the number came in 13.98 billion bushels. that was bigger than previous forecast two months prior to that. guys that is 13% more corn expected to be harvested than last year. so there is a record corn crop that's out there right now but still a lot of concern that is not going to be rising global demand that is the other big number in the report. export expectations for corn, remember we're the largest exporter of corn in the world. a lot of countries depend on us
2:07 pm
to provide corn. export expectations up 14% in this report. that means we're produceing a record corn harvest but the world is consuming more and more. by the way, lori, adam, as i it pass it back to you, looking at reaction in the commodity market, monsanto, potash, agricultural names moving way to the upside. you get corn prices higher, a expectation of a lot of corn seed fetter liar producers will thrive on this -- fertilizer. lori: anything and everything i want to know about corn. thank you, sandra. great stuff. >> thanks, lori. lori: an eight-day trial to determine detroit's eligibility for bankruptcy coming to a close. arguments by the city, union groups and pension fund are underway as bond insurers filed suit against detroit over october 1st default on voter approved bond. the lawsuit claims that the city violated michigan law using bond payment taxes for operations. insurers are requesting that the

lori: it is time to make money with charles payne. this hour he has a new investment for your portfolio. what stock caught your eye this time. >> twitter, right, sucking up all the oxygen in the air from the high-flyers and ipos. this is newbie finally reported after the bell. beat by seven cents. beat revenue. company called fire eye. here's the thing. we know we need internet security. we know the cloud is growing. mobile is growing. they have a product that is the complete package and covers -- sounds like a marvel character.
2:12 pm
adam: i'm oculus i'm imcoming to get you. >> we're impressed. enterprise systems, government systems and obamacare website exchange and some security threats there. i like their business model. they sell products but have a subscription service part of that growing rapidly. that is nice recurring revenues with high margins. it might be at this stage more volatile than say a normal stock because it is relatively new. the difference between this and twitter we're starting to see execution. adam: did you you say they beat on earnings and positive earnings? >> no, they're losing money. they should make money next year. that's a great point. they came in well ahead of what wall street anticipated. >> do they have competitors? >> oh, yeah, this is very big, competitive space but they claim they have some things that no one else has with respect to the packet that is they put together. that is one the things that attracted me to it.
2:13 pm
a lot of people have claims, this is called a continuous protection platform. lori: consumer or business product. >> business and governments mostly. large enterprises and governments and you know, i just feel like, here's the thing, we talk about cyber espionage and cybercrime. five years ago it was all about worms and viruses. it is so much more complicated and dynamic trojans and. adam: old software companies will be enterprise. for you and me in business it will be the cloud. you need something like this. >> you need something like this. we find out all the time how vulnerable it is. the rush to get to the cloud is one thing. the rush to protect it is lagging. hence the possibility for these guys to do extraordinarily a well. lori: thanks, charles. >> i thought i would mix it up. lori: a new one, thanks. >> thanks. adam: time to check the markets again with nicole petallides on floor of the new york stock exchange. taking a look at twitter and down she goes a little bit? >> indeed we're watching it hold
2:14 pm
the $42 line. it traded as low as $42.05 down $2.62 and a loss of nearly 6%. yesterday it traded as high as $50.09 a share. you've seen it moving back and forth. the low was 44. we have broke through that today. the market cap here is roughly 23 billion which puts it ahead of many names in the s&p 500 and similar to aetna, at 23 billion or so, delta air lines just under that level. and kellogg. so though we are not seeing a profitable company you are seeing a huge market cap. obviously there are some people who think it is overvalued. many who think over 40 bucks is overvalued. certainly it was hotly anticipated. you have celebrities, heads of state, businesses, everyone on twitter. more than 500 million tweets daily. meantime people are saying hey, maybe i will get in on this one and others who want to get out
2:15 pm
now. obviously because the ipo price is 26 bucks. still a great performance for the week if you were lucky to get it around this level. adam: lucky insiders. nicole petallides, thank you very much. see you in 15 minutes. lori: hot ipo market.

adam: oil is moving higher on civil unrest in libya where some of the worst fighting in months broke out in tripoli. want to look what oil is doing right now, as traders keep a close watch over a meeting between western countries and of
2:20 pm
course iran over its nuclear program. fox business contributor phil flynn from price futures group is in the trading pits of the cme. just how serious is the issue in libya? >> it is very serious. you can see that played out in the market, especially if you look at the spread between the brent crude what we trade in europe and wti crude. here in the u.s., crude is only up modestly, we're seeing a big jump oversees. there is lot of hope that the talks between iran and western powers would come to an agreement this weekend which would probably mean that we would see an additional one million barrels of light sweet crude come on to the market very quickly. with the talks up in the air still late on friday afternoon, traders have to worry about it entire weekend. so we are seeing them buying brent. concerns about libya, lack of iranian crude, driving up products here in the u.s. we're seeing jump up in the rbob gasoline, up over six cents a
2:21 pm
gallon. just jumped off the heating oil as well up 3.5 cents. the reason is if they can't get their hands on light sweet crude in europe they will look to the u.s. to export some of our gasoline to that part of the world that will make our gasoline more expensive. we're seeing that play out in the market right now. the other market today, natural gas. natural gas is up despite record production in the u.s. it is amazing the market is bouncing up. volatility and options start to go up a little bit. there is still a lot of supply. we're looking more usage for the natural gas. back to you. >> phil flynn from price futures group. thank you. lori: phil, thank you. you set me up beautifully for our next segment. speaking of more uses for natural gas we're seeing a strong shift to natural gas in the trucking industry. company like loews, ups and fedex are moving diesel fleets to natural gas fueled engines. that is because of abundant
2:22 pm
supply of cheap natural gas. driften bit supply. clean energy fuels is the company. it is the biggest nat-gas fueling station company. it is betting big on this transition. the president and ceo joins us for an exclusive interview. sir, welcome to you. >> lori, thank you. lori: you run a company that owns national gas fueling stations. when you hear the companies switching their fleet to natural gas engines? is there enough capacity to keep them fueled? this must be great news for you? >> this is great news for us lorery. we've been at this for a while, lori. we're spent last year building out a nationwide network. that is obviously not as large as what is currently in place for diesel but it's a start. it changes discussion between people that hire trucks and truckers that move to natural gas. next year, it looks like, next year, i talked about this on the
2:23 pm
earnings call, you could have 10 to 12,000, class a heavy-duty trucks of new trucks sold move to thank you gas, four to five times what you had this year. you have infrastructure in place to take care of that but more needs to be done. lori: talk about the trucks and capacity. you have niece new engines. clearly i'm not a trucking expert. 12-liter cummins westport engine and ge capital leasing these trucks. basically a wash for companies owning the trucks in terms of natural gas and diesel. go ahead. >> that's right. i'm sorry. a lot of pieces have now come together. so almost every, every original equipment manufacturer that make as heavy-dutyytruck today has a natural gas engine or truck either announced or on the road. so that's great. the 12-liter engine that you talked about made our frieeds at cummins, cummins westport, that is a game-changer. 80, to 85% of truckers in america that is what they use, a
2:24 pm
12-liter engine. volvo will come out with a 13-liter that moves america's goods. we have that piece of the pie. those trucks are rolling out and doing very well. ge piece we announced with ge a couple weeks ago, first time that a lessor, they loan money and lease a lot out to a lot of truckers, that the is first time you can get a natural gas lease for a truck and you know what residual value is. that used to be the problem. people weren't sure what the truck would be worth three or four years from now. hard to lease it or buy it around finance it. that is now different. lori: these trends are working in your favor. >> yes, they are. lori: i'm curious you reported third quarter non-gaap, non-government approved accounting practices loss at 16 cents a share. do you expect to turn that around from a loss. >> for us we spent a lot of money in place putting this together.
2:25 pm
yes we have a make money over time. it is volume game for us. we have all the pieces in place. we have to get the volume up. we'll see that in 2014 and 2015. we hope that is our path to profitability. lori: natural gas main price, looking 3.54 right now, cheap and abundant supply, right? how does that affect your business. >> it is really very powerful for us. if you look at the previous report. you have oil at $94 a barrel. diesel today in california, $4.09. natural gas is, here is the way it works, lori. you get seven gallons of diesel equivalence per mcf of gas. so the commodity is 50 cents a gallon. you have to do some stuff to it but you can see our fuel is doctor 3459 i cannily -- dramatically cheaper than the diesel price where we give our customers, 1.50 a gallon savings. that is very powerful. uses 20,000 gallons a year.
2:26 pm
