>> when fun time from the bay area's local news station. you're watching kron. 4 news heading. >> now at a gas prices may not be the only number on the rise, how some bay area drivers are addressing their fears of an increase in car related crimes. also, who should get a vote? that proposal to give oakland residents a say on building a new ballpark to try to hang on to be a and judge ketanji brown jackson vows to defend the constitutio her supreme court confirmation hearings. more on what we can expect with this historic nomination. those are our top stories tonight on kron. 4 news at 8. >> thanks for joining us. i'm ken wayne and i'm catherine heenan in for pam moore. although prices are beginning to drop and other parts of the
country, a pickup line could push gas prices even higher for california kron four's grant lodes joins us now with more on that and how bay area drivers can try to find some relief from these rising costs. grant keyword, try can if you thought gas prices were high, you'd be right. but some people say we can expect them now to go even higher after a chevron refinery strike. you had workers hitting the picket line for the first time today. >> nearly 500 employees walk the line demanding more pay and better contracts. chevron, the company argues it's already paying its workers a fair wage. but these workers argue the high cost of bay area living should mean they get more money. then chevron employees working elsewhere in the country. the refinery supplies about 13% of california's gasoline jet fuel and other oil products. here's a look now at current prices around the bay area for a gallon of regular on average in san jose 5.85. in oakland.
this same thing over and napa a little bit more. and san francisco also 5.92 for a gallon of regular gauges. the average is so you do have some places where you'll find higher or lower prices. and if you're lucky, you can find the lowest prices. some people shopping around. they say it's required to do that for their budgets. but that could be a good thing for everybody. the price of oil goes up >> gasoline goes up very fast and matches the steps up. but what we found is when the price of oil goes down, gasoline tends to come down very slowly. it's called the rockets and feathers phenomenon that goes up like a rocket comes down like a feather and the best explanation for that i think is that when the price of oil goes up and gas prices are rising. people shop around more and that makes the market more competitive. but when the price of oil comes down, people sort of relax. and they
say, well, you know, at least i'm not paying as much as i was last week and they don't shop around as much and they're more willing to just go to whatever stations nearby. when we do that, the market gets less competitive and there's less pressure on those stations to lower their prices. interesting psychology there. >> prices may still be high now and they are. but the price of crude oil, again, we alluded to it did start to decrease last week. so if this chevron strike is resolved soon and doesn't cause further supply problems and drive up the prices. we might have better gas prices on the horizon. we can only hope. catherine and ken, back to you. >> gran, thanks very here's another sign of the times. gas thieves are striking, stealing a lot of expensive gasoline kron four's terisa stasio tells us people at one bay area car parts store say there's a high demand to try to protect their fuel. >> this is a very hot commodity right now. a locking
gas cap. gas prices have been going up steadily and it's been pretty frequent, definitely more that people are stealing fuel. so a lot of people are getting locking caps for >> needing to replace their the regular ones. josep howlett santa rosa. napa auto parts as >> more people are coming into the store looking for the caps as reports swirl of gas thieves siphoning valuable fuel. >> and we've just had a lot of requests for so that we typically would see like a lot of heavy work trucks, you know, every now and then the one a walking path. typically they just want what's available and what's ready. but there are a big target because, you know, the old 2030, plus gallons of fuel. and if somebody gets in there and it's 5 or 10 that that's enough for a normal part. so they've been targeted a lot recently, as you know, big trucks and then. >> it is just another harsh reality bay area residents are facing.
>> we're limited supply as far as what we produce here. so it's just going to keep going up more and more. and definitely, you know, it's an opportunity for someone to save himself some money and unfortunately hurt somebody else. >> joseph says it's all unfortunate, but they are ready to help owners deal with this latest dilemma to recess stasio kron. 4 news. >> california lawmakers say they're looking at a number of proposals to try to help drivers with these skyrocketing gas prices. the latest idea direct payments of $200 to everyone making less and $125,000 a year children would count 2. that means a family of 5 would be eligible for $1000 last thursday. a group of democrats in the assembly propose sending $400 to all california taxpayers. >> we hear you and we see you. we see the pain you're feeling at the pump. how inflation is affecting you every day. when you do your grocery shopping in feed your family. >> meanwhile, republican proposal calls for a 6 month gas tax holiday. and governor

getting ejected. no excuse for giving up an offensive rebound on the free throw and reaely just no excuse for coming out flat. the spurs jumped out to a 12 point 1st quarter lead and steve kerr said coming out of that type of effort is simply inexcusable. >> we have to understand we're undermanned. there's 12 games left now is now 11 games left. we're looking at the we've got ahead. there should be a sense of urgency. there's got to be a sense of a competitive fight to that. we take to the other from the very beginning of the game. and i did not see that until it was really late in the game. guys were great night in that 4th quarter fighting like crazy. we have fight like crazy from the start. we got to for enough. >> you know, we haven't really play up the all year. so, you know, one person go down. everybody's got to step up. so especially we've got to got to
lock in defensively offensive. i feel like the way we move the ball. that's going to come. you you know, we just got to find ways to win games. >> you know, a team that is locked in the stanford women and they're back in familiar territory. >> for the 14th straight year, they will play in the sweet 16 this year. they did so by thumping both montana state and kansas. but the competition is about to get a whole lot tougher on friday. they'll take on a maryland team to have won 23 games this season is led by a legendary coach in their own right. and brenda frese stanford beat the terms earlier this year and sunny bahamas. nice shot by frame. believe the right there. so the terms, though, they'll be thinking revenge. the sweet 16, it's in spokane, which is a homecoming for lexi in lacey hall, 2 of stanford's best players floor. >> i think everyone, you know, wanted to get wants to get this book and no one wants to the but for lacing, i feel to
play at home. one last time meant a lot to us meant a lot to our family, went out to our friends. so there was that extra, you know, chip on our shoulder, the mental a little a little bit more for us i think it just came to that came down that extra piece of us, just our team wanting it more than them. and i'm just super super happy. super excited to be heading home. >> so stanford, they play on friday against maryland, as we said, winner likely place, texas. a team that beat. stanford earlier in the year. that on to the wizards side with the warriors side, they play their magic on tomorrow and then have a back to back. it's the heat. then for miami. they go to atlanta, an atlanta to dc dc to memphis, 5 games and then what do they get when they come home? a game against the phoenix so a lot of tough games for the warriors coming up. they need to get together with steph on ice. if they can handle this trip will be in pretty good shape handle 5
games if they can go 3, 2, i think that is unrealistic. outcome and i think steve kerr would be happy with that. given all that's going goes stanford. yeah. go cart. cardinal. the fact card. whatever. yeah, the treatment we know is so hard the cardinals, the bird and then you see a tree jumping around. not going on. but it dododoake sense. where room for the i love that, all right. thanks to the oscas. less than a week away the sunday. how hollywood is getting ready for hollywood is getting ready for its biggest night. care coalition, where are we on alaska airlines? we found that people are raving about their customer care. i mean, take a look at this! wow!
