6:00 pm
member of our vaccine team and she joins us live to break down the top reasons doctors are concerned. stephanie: the ba.5 variant is spreading so fast, doctors say it has never been easier to get infected with covid, even if you are vaccinated. everything from heightened transmissibility to more severe symptoms. we are looking into the top five reasons why ba.5 is shaping up to be the worst. it is not often we hear california called a wright state. but when it comes to covid transmission the cdc could not be more clear. nearly every county across the state with the exception of six is red, signaling high levels of covid community transmission. that includes the entire bay area. so is a new surge coming? >> i think it is at least the second worst surge. stephanie: the cdc estimates more than half of new cases stem from omicron subvariants ba.4 and ba.5. but he explains why the latter
6:01 pm
is the want to worry about. >> the real superpower of ba.5 is re-infections. because ba.5 is new, if you got infected maybe two or three weeks ago, it was likely not ba.5, so you are susceptible to reinfection. stephanie: here are five reasons why ba.5 could be the worst variant yet. first, preliminary evidence from the kirby institute in australia shows false negatives on rapid antigen tests may be higher with ba.5, and it could take up to five days to get accurate results. >> some tricks are combining the throat and the nose, although not official. repeating the test multiple times, which lots of people are doing. stephanie: second, ba.5 is the most transmissible variant, at least 20% more transmissible than omicron, now tying or surpassing measles, the world's most infectious viral disease. >> the more transmissible it is, the easier to get.
6:02 pm
if you are in a crowded outerspace it is very possible. stephanie: third, symptoms of ba.5 may be more painful. >> people are reporting a lot more sore throat, like your throat is on fire. it would not be so serious that you would go to the hospital, but it certainly will be very uncomfortable. stephanie: the fourth and fifth reasons go hand-in-hand. covid hospitalizations in california and the bay area are not overwhelming hospitals, would have reached the highest point since february. but,. with a blind spot of covid cases. several hundred new thousands -- the question is, does all this mean more restrictions, like mask mandates, could come back? >> as we start to enter the fall and people come indoors, and schools are back in session, it's on the table. it is always a possibility. stephanie: an important reminder to add to that, he says we are not currently in a surge, but it
6:03 pm
could be soon. he described it as a holding pattern. so within the next two weeks we can see any impact to hospitalizations and that will likely drive decisions on something like mask mandates. ama: what are you hearing about the chances for additional instructions? stephanie: the san francisco health department says for now they are strongly recommending masking indoors and in crowded public settings, meaning outdoors too. so no mask mandates planned yet. that is the case for most of the bay area counties we reached out to. but that could change depending on what happens over the next couple weeks. so in the meantime, you cannot be too careful. larry: a fire under an oakland freeway stopped traffic today in both directions of interstate 80 near the bay bridge. the fire started for 10:30 this morning on the corner of 34th and wood street.

6:05 pm

6:12 pm
business as usual today. drug dealers were there, the drug addicts were openly using. it appears that some of the people who were in the tenderloin have been pushed out into other areas of the city and that is where you are seeing more of that open drug use. open drug use in san francisco's south of market area has become predictable. drug users nodding off, shooting up, or smoking fentanyl is a matter of course for residents living near eighth and mission streets. >> i started filming things and at first i was not even -- i didn't know what i was going to do with the video. lyanne: richie finally posted a video showing a group of kids getting off of a bus tr tgate their way through an entire block of open drug use. three days after he posted the video, we found that nothing had
6:13 pm
changed. he was not surprised. >> there is a lot of madness going on down here. lyanne: at one point we had to pause the video because we were interrupted by a man yelling at us. we first brought this block to your attention last march as part of our ongoing coverage of the problems that plague the nearby tenderloin district. >> this is what i do every day. i walk them to school because of safety. lyanne: today we witnessed how hard it is for the city to push drug users into rehab. >> i don't use drugs so i don't understand. how hard is it to get help? to reach out and get help? >> the thing with programs, programs are meant for failure. lyanne: i asked if he had tried to stop using drugs. >> i try my own program. my own program is love. lyanne: around midday, a paramedic came to clear the area so city workers could clean the
6:14 pm
sidewalk. for many, the drug crisis is become unacceptable. number one, close the open drug scenes. they are helping no one. they are not helping the users, they are not helping the community. lyanne: how do you close them? >> you have to use law enforcement. lyanne:but ellen of moms against drug deaths says it doesn't have to be punitive. she says the money should put more money into treatment. >> this is crazy. lyanne: on the other hand, he says the city be to target the drug dealers. otherwise users will never get help. >> when they are getting swarmed by drug dealers and solicited drugs right on the street, it is hard for them to have the tenacity and the willpower to say no. lyanne: so, arrested drug dealers, otherwise nothing will ever change. that is what people like wynn as asking the city to do. it will be interesting to see if san francisco's newly appointed district attorney will be more aggressive towards these drug
6:15 pm
dealers. ama: san francisco just got a new district attorney. what is her role in all this? >> she is the bridge. in her first days of office, one of her first directives to staff is she wants to re-examine the city's drug policy in relation to users and dealers. she wants to personally go over whatever plea agreements are being struck right now with people picked up for repeatedly selling those drugs. right now as it stands the average drug dealer only spends 5.5 days in jail and that is back on the streets. so she is going to try and get that changed. she is also going to try and work i believe with the sheriff's department to say maybe we can get some rehab in the jails where we have taken them out in recent years. larry: how does the city actually make the streets safer kids? is it money, programs? you just told me during the
6:16 pm
break that after they cleaned that whole area, all the drug users were back already in a matter of hours. lyanne: absolutely. and he posted it again. people in the tenderloin had complained before that the same thing was happening to them. their kids were not safe, they needed to be shielded. and the city responded by bringing in community ambassadors. and those community really paved the way. they would clear the area of those who were shooting up and he drug dealers. and people saw a real change when it came to kids. that has not happened in the midmarket, south of market area. for some reason. and you are asking should we pour more money? maybe that is the solution. but at what point do we stop? let me tell you, escorting kids by community ambassadors is one of those images, i don't know,
6:17 pm
it is probably not good for san francisco. ama: there are a lot of image problems right now. how does san francisco fix this image problem? all these videos like what we saw today. phil: it's been going on for years and the question is what is san francisco going to do? it is affecting tourism, shopping. you are downtown now and the businesses are not doing well. one of the key reasons is the open drug dealing and open drug use. it is also a mental health issue. but yes, it is an image problem. as long as these videos keep going out, it is going to be changing the way people feel about san francisco both in the bay area, the nation, and the world. lyanne: and i will add to that that i saw these kids today, some of them my son's age, 17, 18, as young as that, just passed out, laid out. the one thing that we cannot be here as a society, i believe, is
6:18 pm
just be complacent. i see a lot of people going by there, sort of nodding their head, and shaking their heads and saying nothing, basically, and just moving on. and that is really hard to see. and i believe that we really have to talk to our kids about our drug problems here, and not only have a conversation, even though it will be uncomfortable, but really have several conversations, because they need to hear it. and by the way, we have a drug problem, drug image, because we have a massive drug problem here in san francisco. larry: yeah, one that appears will not be fixed anytime soon. thank you for your insight. we put together a 30 minute special called 50 blocks, streaming right now. download or open the streaming app on demand right now. ama: let's turn now to the heat. a couple days of really hot temperatures. larry: please tell us relief

>> this is abc 7 news. larry: gas prices have dipped recently but aaa tells us they could be headed to new records, and not in a good way, because of the summer driving season. ama: we wanted to take a deep dive into why are prices soaring, why do californians pay more, and what will it take to bring prices down. larry: dan noyes is here with some answers. it just feels like we are being gouged, but i know in your report it will indicate it is even worse overseas. so maybe we are lucky? dan: it still feels wearable either way.
6:30 pm
i have been -- it still feels horrible either way. i came up with a clear picture of how we got here and where we are headed. we have seen gas prices easing. aaa says today the california average for regular is down $.35 from a month ago to $6.08 a gallon, but expects it to rise again. >> july is where we see the highest increase in demand as more and more people are taking summer vacations. so any decrease in the price of gasoline right now may be short-lived. dan: that is our first question, why are guys prices so high? -- gas prices so high? andrew campbell is exact executive -- he tells me gas prices are the highest ever, even after adjusting for inflation. >> the main driver of gas prices being higher is high oil prices, by far. dan: it is simple supply and demand. when covid hit, people stopped
6:31 pm
driving, so gas prices fell. when the pandemic eased up we started driving again and prices began to climb. then russia, which produces about 10% of the world's oil, invaded ukraine. >> that drove prices higher, especially because a lot of western countries have stopped buying western oil. dan: another factor, the conditions of refineries that turned crude oil into gasoline. >> the scaled back on maintenance during covid. now demand is roaring back for gasoline and refineries are not producing at full capacity. some have even shut down. dan: kevin represents the major oil companies and refineries operating in our region. why can't you just flip a switch and turn them on and get it back to the way it was? >> refineries are incredible chemistry sets. so you cannot simply just ramp them up. it takes work to get them ready to go. dan: he says companies are reluctant to invest in a state that wants to end sales of gas
6:32 pm
powered cars by the year 2035. for now, his clients are making record profits. in the first three months of the year, the top five oil companies brought in more than $35 billion in profits, up 200% from last year. why can't companies take less profits and maybe pass on some profits to the consumer in the form of lower prices? >> look, we all feel the pain at the pump, and we all get it. no one wants to pay these prices. when you look at the role of companies in this, number one, we need to provide an affordable and reliable supply. hopefully that will bring down costs. dan: those profits have the attention of the white house. >> my team will be sitting down with the ceo's of the major oil companies this week, and they need a and how they justify making $35 billion. dan: do individual gas station owner's share in the massive profits? some drivers think you must be
6:33 pm
doing great. is that the case? >> not really. we would prefer just like the drivers to have low prices. dan: he owns more than a dozen gas prices in san jose and san francisco. he says his profit per gallon stays about the same, no matter how much the oil companies raise prices. >> if you give me $2 and i sell it at $3. but if you give me $6.50 and i sell at $7, i only make $.50. my purchase price has gone up significantly. dan: he also says customers spend less in his convenience stores when gas prices are high. california drivers pay more than any other state. take a look at the latest aaa numbers for a gallon of regular. $6.08 for us compared to the national average, $4.67. i spoke with an economist with the price tracking app gasbuddy. why are prices always hired
6:34 pm
california? >> california has myriad taxes, a cap and trade program, a special blend of gasoline. they are also somewhat of a petrol island. dan: we aren't connected to other oil-producing states by pipelines, so we pump from the ground 30% of the oil we consume and import 70% from other countries. and that is expensive. >> there is a saying, the cure to high prices is high prices. that will incentivize oil prices to produce more oil. that will incentivize refiners to refine more oil. but it takes time for those wheels to be put in motion. dan: it is not much consolation, but drivers in dozens of countries pay much more than we do, more than double in some cases. if you had to get one message across to drivers in california, what would it be? >> get use high prices for a while. if your eyes on the global news. that will tell you one rises are
6:35 pm
coming down. in the meantime, look to save a few cents per gallon wherever you can by shopping around. dan: bottom line, we are at the mercy of oil companies reaping record profits. i have posted links for sources in the story, and for the app that can help you find the cheapest gas, at ama: we need to be able to find that cheap gas. if you have a story for the abc 7 news i-team, go to or call 1-888-40-iteam. larry: a stabbing at a walgreens in union square. the online spoke with the victim, security experts, and the da's office. reporter: this walgreens in san francisco is in the heart of union square. a store frequented by locals and tourists. it is also the location where a security guard was stabbed multiple times with a knife the
6:36 pm
morning of july 1. >> it is not news for us. reporter: according to sources, the 61-year-old seen in these images used in the investigation has a history of causing trouble at that store. when the guard, who declined an interview with us, asked for the man to leave, sanders pulled out the kitchen knife. unlikely many high-profile shoplifting incidents abc 7 has covered in recent years were security often looks on, this guard attempted to diffuse the situation using this taser. >> yeah, in california laws have changed over the years, where most shop owners do not allow security to put hands on anybody. when someone pulls a knife on a guard, the guard has every right to protect himself, herself from great bodily injury. that includes also pulling a firearm to stop that threat. reporter: sfpd tells me sanders was arrested later a few blocks away and booked on charges
6:37 pm
including attempted homicide and committing a felony while on bail. i spoke to a number of walgreens employees at different stores who tell me they are not surprised by the stabbing, given how much crime there is on a daily basis. one employee did mention he helps the safety situation will approve with the newly appointed d.a. brooke junctions -- >> as your neck sticks his attorney -- next district attorney, i will restore accountability to our criminal justice system. reporter: i also asked walgreens what they were doing to keep employees and guards safe. this is the statement i received, reading, the safety of our patients and team members is our top priority. we are cooperating with local authorities. sanders remains in custody and has his next court appearance july 19. the online -- deon limb.
