9:05 am
travel restrictions have been loosened. a lot of people now able to leave a little bit earlier and stay later for the holiday because they can work remotely. and of course, many reasons why they're taking off. there are some people why they're not going to be in the bay area. but at other places. >> we going to pay because, you know, in a vegas and thanksgiving. >> first, thanksgiving in vegas or us. yes, post even in vegas. yeah. so we are like excited. >> then things go well. my daughter, my new grandson. >> with truck for the job on the clock. >> so we seeing in ontario, we're going to see your daughter. she goes to ucsb. you guys look so young, stop it. >> travel experts. they were worried that maybe the numbers with be stagnant or even down this year because of inflation. a lot of people, of course, are spending more of their money on other things. and then the flights, of
9:06 am
course, they're not cheap. it looks like people are saying forget about it. it is worth traveling and that's why we're seeing the numbers up and up. >> today is a very busy day. the next should be on sunday when travelers come back. >> all right. and will i know i asked you last hour, how delays and cancellations were going didn't seem that bad. then have you had a chance to to take a look now? >> oakland is not doing too bad at all. i mean, they don't have to deal with some of the other problems like sfo as far as open as concern. and i want to draw your attention to the screen. these are the numbers at 09:00am. but of course, things change as we go on. so by all means call ahead. but as of about 09:00am this morning, we're talking about 10 flight cancellations at sfo. 2 in oakland and 5 in san jose. a very fluid situation. of course, it's pretty here in the bay area. keep in mind, though, other places in the
9:07 am
country probably dealing with weather. so as always, if a flight say doesn't take off in chicago in time, then it lands late in oakland or if it doesn't take off at all in chicago, it doesn't land here. so we've got problems. got to stay on top of it. but the bottom line is happy thanksgiving. everybody. happy thanksgiving. james and john. >> back to you as well. well, thank you very much. as i said, as part of our team coverage, we're also following the situation with the roads to and so let's switch over and chat with kron 4 sarah stinson who is talking to drivers this morning as you're filling up at the pump. good morning, sara. >> hey, good morning, james. that's right. we're talking with drivers out here. a lot of them going to work and then some of them going to their thanksgiving destination. many saying that with the inflation hitting them hard this year, the gas is adding up along with the turkey and it's all becoming unaffordable at this 76 station in menlo park. it's
9:08 am
costing drivers for regular gas $5. and $0.39. and for premium gas, $5 and $0.69 just have to shop around for that $4 range. if you want to get a deal. but we know from aaa, according to them, we're going to see about 49 million americans on the road this year, traveling for the thanksgiving holiday. that is actually up from last year by only 0.4%. and then it is actually down from 2019 levels. 2.5%. let's take a look at what you can face at the pump in the bay area. gases, most expensive in napa on average costing $5. and $0.45 on the list. it goes from expensive to the top and goes down to the cheapest in vallejo and fairfield costing $5 and $0.3. and so we caught up with drivers this morning to talk to them about average price is where they going. i i've met with the man and he is going up to the north bay. he's so excited. but there's
