danon: alright, july 4th travel coming up here and we're going to see the lowest gas prices that we've seen in years.black: it's pretty amazing isn't it? so, because most of us we fill up our tank of gas and we look at it as kind of a tax when gas is expensive. right now, it's not expensive. drivers on the road this fourth of july. we're going to see the cheapest gas prices since 2005. u.s. consumers are going to see $2.21 cents per gallon at the pump. and again you're not going to see that in california because california has really high taxes. prices are expected to be lower than they were on new year's day this year about 12 cents. gas prices are down 15 cents in the last couple of weeks. opec tried to cut the supply by
cutting how many barrels were on the market. but there's just no enough demand. 64 percent of travelers said that gas prices do not impact their decision. . .but again we do end up with more money in our pockets. about 50 to 60 percent of drivers are going to take to the road this year with trips over 500 miles. it's up nine percent from last year so we are driving and we are consuming that gasoline but again, cheap gas. fourth of july. . .it's pretty sweet. danon: we certainly love it. it turns out we're going to get less in social security than our parents did.black: yes because there's a trick inside of social security that if you wait until your full retirement age and you delay it a couple years, you get 8 percent each year that you delay it. and because the social security age is creeping up higher and higher we're going to get less and less. so right now if you delay your retirement to 70 and a half. . .you get the maximum benefit but if they're forcing you to call your first year of retirement a little bit early. . .65 is the age that you can retire. that's what it used to be. now it's 66 in two months so we've already lost 7 or 8 months there.. . and a year plus. and that's going to continue to go in that trend so social
security. . .talked with a financial planner. financial planners won't even count social security if you're under the age of 45. black: if you have a question for rob, post it on his facebook page and we'll try to answer it on the air here on kron4. the a's in houston taking on the best team in baseballbob melvin going for his 4th stright winsean manaea some call him the "somoan randy johnson" sit down george springer!... he gave up 9 hits but only 1 run in 5 2/3 inningstop 6th/ 1-1 tieryon healy goes opposite field off

lynch>"every broadcaster has a win. you fist bump your partner, great job. there's no score board. you missed the absolute allation when you have a win. you missed just the terrible agony type feeling when you lost and you missed the opportunity to wake up and go try and do it again. i know i understand im not playing, but being that invested is what i think drew me back. ""once you played at a high level, i would imagine you are sitting in a meeting and a 25 year old is telling you, "great point but make it shorter." "you're right. i got to kind of find my way and i had great people at fox working with me. i got a little bit better every year and that's what i did as a player.
