people get to and from these differenet locations.one big advantage that the howard terminal and lake merrit locations have over the coliseum is their proximity to downtown. the coliseum has excellent transit options but there's almost nothing around the coliseum. fans we spoke to say that if a new stadium were built next to the old one it might attract businesses like restaurant and bars.sot build it and they will come.sot build it and they will come. the team's goal is to announce the selection of a new site this year. it will take about two years to build the stadium. in oakland, charles clifford kron 4 news. ahead at eight.. o-j

getting better at saving money. there are a lot of americans that have no savings at all. black: yeah, i'm not sure how many americans are out there right now but 57- million americans have no emergency savings at all. the percentage of those lacking emergency funds is down to 24- percent this year, however 53- percent of those ages 53 to 62 said that they had zero dollars saved. more than any other age group many americans of single plan expenses like a roof or a broken tooth can set you off to a tail spin of poverty. and again it tends to be the oldest generation. . the baby boomers. the younger side of the baby boomers don't have enough saved because they were working 5,6 years ago when the recession hit. they lost their job, they went through their emergency fund and it's tough to build it back up. the one thing that i could tell you is that when i was 18 i started saving about
$166 dollars a month automatically. i just had it go straight from my paychecks, go straight from my bank into mutual funds. automatic savings and paying yourself first is the way to go to ever get ahead in life.danon: u.s. crude oil. we're seeing crude really dropping. . i'm really excited about lower gas prices. black: see you see that. i see the world economy struggling because we're not consuming. . . danon: i just want . . .we're paying way too much for gasoline here.black: you got to leave the state of california, but anyway. . .prices have dropped down about $43. they're expected to go to the high 30's at this point in time because it's kind of a self- fulfilling prophecy. they're down 22- percent from their 52-week high. any time anything is down 20-percent it's considered a fair market. so if it's the stock market or the oil market, oil stocks like exxon and chevron are feeling the effects of this. it turns out nigeria, libya and iraq. . .not the biggest oil-producing countries in the world but they're still all tied towards opec. they've been raised in their production and stock piles are building on a global level. american drillers are locked into pulling oil out of the ground, but if oil prices continue to drop the americans will pull out and the supply will change in the future. but short term, you're right. better gas prices going into winter. danon: post your questions for rob on his facebook page and we'll try and answer them on the air here on kron4.

franchise for which his dad is an icon(sot: canyon barry) "i'm not necessarily nervous... more just excited. you know, my family has obviously a lot of ties to the warriors organization. so to be able to come out here, and try out for this team, and kinda show them what i can do has been a great experience. i see his pictures hanging up all over the practice gym and it's just a blessing to be able to play the game that i love, and that he loved. and to come to a spot where he made a name for himself has just been great. it would be a dream come true just to be able to play in the nba, especially golden state. i think i would be able to fit in really well here with the culture and just with style of basketball, i think it would be a perfect fit. and obviously to be able to play where my dad and brothers played would just be an added bonus... and kinda bring back the underhand free throw to golden state it's been 40- something years, but it would be fun to have the underhanded free throw back in the bay area."
