8:05 am
but the ukrainian resistance has been so fierce. u.s. defense officials believe russia is trying to get more troops and supplies into ukraine. that includes using foreign fighters are private military companies. these forces will be used to secure areas already under russian control. we're offensive elsewhere in the country. on tuesday, the prime ministers of poland, the czech republic and slovenia traveled by train from poland to ukraine's capital city into the line of fire. despite safety concerns, leaders claim the meeting was to serve as a message. ukraine deserves a place in the eu, but they stopped short of further pushing a future nato membership appearing to concede. >> time now is 8, 0, 5, and we want to take you live to outside of the court as sunny balwani with fairness. that's elizabeth holmes. top deputy. an ex-boyfriend is facing allegations of defrauding investors and patients in this is live in san jose as he is walking into the courtroom, a jury of 6 men and 6 women has been chosen to determine his

8:08 am
selected. hopefully there's no more disruptions if there's not opening statements will begin this morning at 9 o'clock. so just minutes away from this trial, starting and dorian, as you know, this case has really captivated not only for silicon valley where we're at now, but also the entire world. there's national media here. local media here all trying to get that shot. a sunny balwani and get the latest on this trial. stay tuned as we continue to cover this for kron on kronon dari, of course, all the latest poll. send it back to the studio for now. thanks a lot, sarah try. but there anything want to go in journalist there. >> time now is 8, 0, 8, and free mine this morning as gas prices continue to go up. we're all wanting to know when will relieve happen because you probably saw the price of crude fell. we talked about when it dip below 100. now it's trading below $110 a barrel for oil. and that will slowly trickle down. aaa says that that price accounts for about 50% of what drivers pay for gas. it's going to take a while before it affects gas prices. for now, the prices
8:09 am
are still high. california's average is 5.77. and let's take a look at the bay area as we're about a dime above that san francisco regular going for an average of 5.88 santa rosa. 5.84 in oakland, 5.81 and san jose on average paying 5.77 a gallon right now as is expensive. also happening today, your uber ride is going to get more expensive because it's the first day of a new surcharge to help drivers deal with the rising cost of gas has are saying they can't make ends meet at the regular rate kron four's will tran is live at sfo are a lot of people take uber's from the airport where they have to say this morning will. >> uber and lyft drivers. they're very popular at airports. so there's a good chance if you're getting dropped off here. it's not a family member but a stranger and that stranger needs money according to uber. and that's why it started at midnight. they did announce couple of days ago and it went into effect that if you're hopping into uber or lift, you will be
8:10 am
charged a little bit more. >> as far as uber is concerned is 45 to $0.55 more per ride and the money will go directly to the drivers. lyft. they did not say the details but more than likely they follow competitors. so it should be in the same ballpark. let's face it. gas prices are going up and up and then the profits for the drivers keep going down and down had a chance to talk to the driver. he says anything is better than nothing. >> well, i still think that's not for the guys price should be a little more. you know. yeah, a lyft didn't say exactly how much, but you will be getting something because to offset the gas prices role. that will be great actually. yeah. looking forward to it. that's the case. how have the gas prices affected? you? it didn't affect me. i mean, before easing fill up my guys, you know? used to cost me the high prices, 50 bucks notes about 85.
8:11 am
>> the other alternative could have been for lyft or uber to take less on commission. but of course, their business and they didn't do that. so just like all the other businesses are many out there. they pass along the difference to us. the consumer. this is going to last at least 2 months. and by the way, if you use uber eats, you'll be charged anywhere between 35 and $0.45 as well. i can tell you it doesn't make a difference. if you're thinking you might get a break in if every penny counts that you might get a break, if you hop into an electric car, that's not going to be the case because uber will still charge you that extra. 45 to $0.55. even if you're hopping into, liked >> all right. thanks a lot. well, still to come on the kron 4 morning news and attempted home invasion in oakland ends in a shooting. we're going hear from the homeowner who says thankful his family wasn't hurt. after the break, teachers in san francisco are demanding back
