know that's ahead of the fda and cdc. any idea when federal authorities might approve that? >> reporter: right, david, so, the fda says they will make that decision as quickly as possible and while we don't have exact timing here, we do know they don't have to wait on an extra -- an expert panel to weigh in on the decision this time around. david? >> kayna whitworth live in colorado tonight. kayna, thank you. now to that major news on the american economy tonight, it will come as no surprise for so many of you at home who have taken notice of prices rising everywhere. gas and at the grocery store you as well. inflation rising 6.2% from a year ago. that's the biggest increase in more than 30 years. president biden today at the port of baltimore acknowledging the pain and the supply chain issues contributing to all of this. here's abc's stephanie ramos tonight. >> reporter: today, the government reported the largest jump in consumer prices since 1990, for almost everything.
barbara lafleur, a mother and grandmother shopping for thanksgiving dinner says she's seeing it. >> starting with gas and then clothing in stores and food, restaurant prices. everything has gone up. >> reporter: compared to this time last year, filling up your tank costs nearly 50% more. and heating your home nearly 60% more. >> it's really crazy. i spend $350 a month on gas and it's a necessity. $350 a month is like a car payment. >> reporter: and food prices are skyrocketing. steak costs nearly 25% more than last year. have you noticed a difference in prices? have you noticed them increasing? >> oh, definitely. i got my bird, because i heard there is going to be a shortage. but i don't think there is, but they are much more expensive than they have been in past seasons. much more expensive. >> reporter: late today, president biden at the port of baltimore, acknowledging americans are feeling the inflation and pointing to the
supply chain struggles contributing to that. promising to get to work on it. >> we're tracking the issues and trying to figure out how to tackle them head on. >> reporter: david, economists say expect inflation to get worse before it gets better. experts say the increase in inflation is costing the average american household about $175 a month. that could be a cable bill or an electric bill. and for those families living paycheck to paycheck, they are really feeling the pinch. david? >> all right, stephanie, thank you. we're going to turn next this evening to the toughest sentence yesterday in the january 6th riot at the capitol. a new jersey gym owner sentenced to more than three years in federal prison for assaulting a police officer. authorities say seen here in a frame of video from that day. here's our chief washington correspondent jonathan karl now. >> reporter: today, capitol rioter scott fairlamb, seen here posing with a police baton and
with a pepper ball between his teeth, received the harshest sentence yet for any of the january 6th defendants. 41 months, more than three years in federal prison. fairlamb was the first to plead guilty to soughting police officers. >> usa! >> reporter: prosecutors are now seeking a more severe punishment for the most high profile rioter, 51 months, more than four years, for the so-called q shaman, jacob chansley, who marched through the capitol with face paint and viking helmet, allegedly leaving a threatening note for mike pence in the senate chamber. while the justice department goes after the marauders, the house january 6th committee is investigating what donald trump and his top advisers did to lay the groundwork for the riot and incite the violence. overnight, a federal judge ruled against trump's efforts to block the committee from getting white house documents related to what he and his aides were doing right before and during the chaos.
the judge flatly rejected trump's claim of executive privilege, writing, "presidents are not kings, and plaintiff is not president." she called the january 6th investigation, "a matter of unsurpassed public importance" that "relates to our core democratic institutions and the public's confidence in them." trump is appealing the ruling and even if he is unlikely to win, he will do everything he can to delay and stonewall the january 6th investigation. david, it's a classic trump tactic when faced with investigations. >> jon karl live in washington. jon, thank you. new developments tonight in the deadly concert investigation in houston. the police chief before the cameras today now pledging that those who need to be held accountable will be held accountable. the police chief now saying that travis scott and producers at the astroworld festival could have stopped the concert where at least eight people died. authorities say production was told that cpr was being performed as the show was still under way. we turn now to the abc news exclusive tonight. our interview with the district attorney on the case of that deadly movie set shooting. tonight, what she says about those claims that this could
have been sabotage. she also reveals more live rounds were found on the set. and late today, for the first time, a crew member who witnessed the deadly shooting coming forward now. the chief of lighting filing a lawsuit and among his claims, he alleges that alec baldwin wasn't supposed to fire the gun during rehearsal. here's a bc's kaylee hartung. >> reporter: tonight, for the first time, a crew member who witnessed the fatal shooting on that movie set in new mexico is speaking out. >> what a terrible tragedy and injustice when a person lose her life on film set while making art. >> reporter: rust's chief of lighting, serge svetnoy, filing the first civil lawsuit against the film's production company, and the crew members who officials say handled the gun, including alec baldwin. svetnoy alleging baldwin was negligent as a producer on the film, saying "they attempted to save money by hiring an insufficient number of crew members to safely handle the props and firearms." the lawsuit claiming the scene
the crew was rehearsing "did not call for defendant baldwin to shoot the colt revolver" but only to draw the gun and point it in the general direction of the camera. the santa fe district attorney telling "good morning america" in an exclusive interview there were multiple levels of failure on the set. saying it could be months before she's able to determine if those failures were criminal, but she's already rejecting a theory from the attorney representing the film's armorer. do you believe sabotage is a possibility? >> no. >> reporter: last week, hannah gutierrez-reed's attorney saying the possibility of sabotage should be explored. if it were to be found that this was a case of sabotage, would you beingi at a murder charge? >> certainly a higher level of murder charge than we would potentially be looking at with the facts that we have now, yes. >> reporter: the d.a. also confirming more live rounds have been recovered from the set, in addition to the one fired by alec baldwin. >> we still don't know how they got on the set. and how they got there i think will be one of the most
important factors going into a charging decision. >> reporter: and david, even though the d.a. said in our exclusive interview that this was not an act of sabotage, today, the armorer's attorney doubling down on his claim. he's calling for a full investigation, saying, "we are convinced this was sabotage and that hannah is being framed." david? >> all right, kaylee hartung with the interview with the d.a. tonight. kaylee, thank you. when we come back, tracking severe storms moving across the country tonight. possible tornadoes and damaging winds. then in the east tomorrow. and the female soccer star tonight and the attack. a group of men aiming at her legs and authorities now asking if a teammate was behind this. ♪ there are beautiful ideas that remain in the dark. but with our new multi-cloud experience, you have the flexibility you need
