4:18 pm
water levels at the same level, the subsidence will continue to 10, 20, maybe 30 years. >> some believe once collapsed, the underground aquifers could become difficult to recharge or lose a percentage of their capacity. the seeking has an effect on our groundwater but if you look around, that impact goes farther, threatening everything from roadways to rail lines to our aboveground water supply. seeking or subsidence can damage the canals that carry water up and down the state, slowing the flow and causing leaks. the delta-mendota canal is already slated for repairs. this stanford researcher believes a long-term solution to subsidence is achievable but says it will require more aggressive recharging of the groundwater basins. >> much of the modeling assumes that if you stop the water level
4:19 pm
going down, the subsidence is going to stop. but that is wrong. there is a delay between the water level going down and the clay's responding. >> it may require raising the water table 30 feet or more, but they say they're good news is if water levels to rise from a combination of rain, recharge, and tighter controls on pumping, the sinking could begin to be controlled. next week, i will look at technology that state water managers are using to fill our depleted aquifers more quickly. dion: thank you. virtual reality is a big industry, but some people cannot enjoy it. larry: trying to

4:37 pm
driverless robotaxis that are way ahead of tesla's. so where's the investors' money? in the last year, elon musk pulled $48 billion out of tesla, seven times the profits they've ever made. his ceo compensation was 1,000 times the average for a fortune 500 ceo. elon, is your full self-driving software just a trillion-dollar ponzi scheme? did you become the wealthiest man in history by swindling customers and investors? i'm dan o'dowd and i'm running for u.s. senate because congress needs to shut down elon musk's full self-driving fiasco. someone needs to stand up to him. what are you recommending for muscle pain? based on clinical data, i recommend salonpas. agreed... my patients like these patches because they work for up to 12 hours, even on moderate pain. salonpas. it's good medicine

4:40 pm
variant you are getting, i does not like it identifies itself before you get the chills in bed. it seems like we are going to be going through this for a while. if you think gas prices are bad at your neighborhood station, because you are not feeling up in mendocino. gas at this auto repair selling for $9.60 a gallon for regular. gas price as this is the most expensive gas in the country. the owner said her prices are high because she is independent and does not sell food and drink to help make ends meet. i cannot imagine a lot of people -- well, there is a car. do you think it is almost inevitable that we are going to have $10 gas? dan: i think so. and the challenge is from
4:41 pm
everything i have been hearing, it is not going down as quickly as we might expect. it could stay high for some time. this is close to $10 a gallon. if you have a $20 -- a 20 gallon tinker, you are looking at $200. a lot of people are thinking about electric cars. i make it a horse at this point. dion: in los angeles, it made headlines that there was a gas station selling for eight dollars a gallon. what i wonder about mendocino, given the landscape of how many gas stations there are in comparison, maybe this is a supply and demand type thing, if it is in a rural area and this owner happens to be the only gas station owner. dan: i have heard from people who own gas stations at the profit margin on the gas is pretty slim. larry: interesting. dion: speaking about driving, state regulators have approved a permit for driverless taxi

4:43 pm
drink. this ones from 10:00 to 6:00, i can see it being used for that. dion: what if you do get sick and there is no oversight and what happens in the car? dan: that is a great question. i don't know how you are connected with the app, if you can get help. certainly, they will have some permission. that is a great question. although i would probably try it just to see. this is where we are going. if those hours, it is probably as safe as a lot of people driving at that hour. mike: i don't work those hours. larry: i think it is safe to take baby steps with self-driving vehicles. dan: and that is what this is. larry: the technology is far from perfect. mike: just not having someone in there in case something happens is my deterrent. larry: we will see. we will make incremental progress. a restaurant in arizona want you
4:44 pm
to lick the wall? he would rather go in the taxi. the walls at the mission restaurant in scottsdale -- let's get the close-up -- are made of himalayan rock salt brought in by the chef for the ambience. they are liked by -- licked by customers to help the tequila go down? the salt is said to have sanitary properties. the staff regularly wipe the walls down. dan: this is a hard no. all right, driverless taxi, himalayan rock salt, take your brick -- take your pick. mike: i have one of those. just a block. dion: i have a block, it is tasty, but not for public consumption. mike: did we not learn anything from the pandemic? licking were someone else left?
4:45 pm
-- licked? dion: how do you know your bedstead enough? -- you rinsed it enough? dan: the alcohol from the tequila probably makes you more inclined to try it. larry: several tequila sin, it suddenly seems like a good idea -- tequilas in, it suddenly seems like a good idea.
