quoting an average gas price in america is like quoting the average temperature. it's different depending on where you live. the difference is the taxes. the government breaks down gas prices like this. taxes make up 12% of the price of a gallon of gas. 6% of the cost is shipping and advertising. 6% is refining it, and 76% is the cost of crude oil. high oil prices mean high gas prices. >> people see those numbers and they cannot understand how everybody who is reaching into their pockets isn't making money. but not everyone is making money at gas prices at $3.80.
5:12 pm
>> the big profits have been in exploration and production. a lot are getting out of retailing, a lot are getting out of refining. >> the good news for you, the average gas price is now below where it was a year ago. >> i think you'll see prices retreat as we get into the season. >> normally, prices peak around 4ths of july. i think they're peaking right now. >> here is that pesky average again. if you live in the northeast, refinery closures mean prices could stay high. and every dollar in here is a dollar not spent on consumer goods or on a 529 college savings plan or your retirement savings. that's why gas prices are the economic indicator we love to hate. >> all right, hold on. this isn't the segment that you think it is, i promise you. the unemployment rate dropped a tenth of a point to a8.1%, but that's mostly because some people simply stopped looking for work.
5:13 pm
they're still unemployed. why does the jobless rate go down? mathias shapiro breaks down the big ideas visually and explains the unemployt rate to you. >> a lot of time, people think about the unemployment rate, they think of it as a measurem of people without jobs. but it comes from a definition that isened what we expect. 21 of those people are too young to have a job, five are in college, 46 are working, 5 match the technical definition, and the rest may or may not want a job, but they haven't been looking at them. we only look at two groups, the 46 with jobs and the five people who have been looking for a job in the last five weeks. if all of the people had a panic attack and barricaded themselves indoors, four weeks from now, the unemployment rate would be 0 pest. it just means people who are
5:14 pm
stocking up on zombie repellent aren't counted in the work force. they're now out of the work force. that's a growing concern because the working group has been shrinking for the last decade. the unemployment rate will recover in time, but as the baby boomers begin to retire, we'll see a smaller and smaller percentage of people with job. it's the money that these 46 people make that helps support the 54 other people. they may do it directly or indirectly. so as the jobless number s rise more peep move into the top group, which means more weight on the dwindling support group. getting people out of the unemployed category and into the employed category is what we need for an economic recovery. >> being out of work can be traumatizing. you knethis, or you have seen others go through it. dr. wendy walsh, human behavior expert in loss, career counselors, one of the most important tools for people out of work is their team, friends
5:15 pm
or family cheering them on. how valuable is that? >> well, not to just cheer them on in an artificial way, but to give them usable connections. the bigger your social network is, whether it's your family and friends in your neighborhood or former work, but also the ones you can meet online. there's very important to get connected and have a lot of people rallying around you. >> for people who are trying to find work, they're struggling now. how is the experience different for men and then for women? >> well, you know, it's hard to generalize by any gender, i hate to do that, but traditionally, jobs have been so associated with men's identities, so part of their depression if they're feeling it after a long-term job search is that they're losing a piece of their identity when they're not working. and you know, we don't often see the same signs of depression in member that we see in women. they're more quiet about it, they may go home and drink a beer. it's important that we watch for that in our men.
5:16 pm
women, the big challenge for them, of course, especially the ones in the sandwich generation is they also have the burden of care giving. many are taking care of elderly family members or children. as they're hunting for a job, they're also taking care of other people and looking for affordable child care. >> you have to really feel it out because if you're close to someone looking for a job and they could be getting discouraged, how do you know, especially with unemployment like it is, how do you know when to push and when to lay back and play the cheerleader? >> that's a $2 million question, and family members have been asking it for all -- about all family members in need. when diz your support become enabling? i would ask myself, how much is this person tying into the victim motif? i'm a victim of this awful recession, of this, but yet, have they used the last two and a half years to look for jobs or retool themselves or are they flying on the victim thing?
5:17 pm
sometimes it has to be tough love from family members who are feeding these people. >> and you know this story personally because you went back to school, and so you were unemployed for a while, going to school. you had to downsize and had your team there cheering you on, but you also had to support that team and that family. you had to pay the bills. so what if someone doesn't have a support system like you? what should they do? >> they should do exactly what i did. i built a brand on facebook and twitter. i'm not joking. i found every colleague i had ever worked with before, and rather than saying i'm desperate, i wrote blogs so people could see my ideas and action. i put posts on books on that i thought were faceinating so the people who looked at my online google search and i messed with it and messed with it. you can do that in numerous ways. learn about how you can have an electronic footprint that will look great to an employer. >> i think this is a very valuable piece of advice, not
5:18 pm
only did you do that, but you downsized. i don't want to get too personal -- >> you're going to tell stories out of school. >> you told me, you downsized, rented out your home, moved into the downstairs apartment, and you also said you went to target or to a discount store and you bought just several colorful sweaters, inexpensive. that's what you wore for a while, and you dressed them up. it's valuable advice. >> i not only moved to a small apartment, my two children and i lived at the height of the recession in a one-room apartment, not a one-bedroom apartment, but a one-room apartment. i went to target because america was on sale in 2009 and 2010. i found these brightly colored sweaters that were $6.66 each, and i bought ten of them, and that's what you saw on cnn in the past few years. >> well, look at you now. look at you now. thank you. >> look at me now. >> thank you, dr. wendy. good seeing you. happy birthday. i really enjoyed it. >> a great party. >> look at her now.

5:26 pm
closest tomorrow. we have our earth. our moon, and the moon, right, goes around the earth. but it's not a perfect circle when it does that. it's an elliptical pattern, right? at one point, it's at its farthest away, and one point it's at the closest point. it's going to appear bigger. we have a couple graphics. it kind of spells it out for you a little bit. there you can see the perigee i was referring to. the moon comes within about 222,000 miles from the earth. so astronomers love this because they're going to get a slightly clearer view than they but get, and the moon is about 30% brighter and 14% bigger. this happens last year. that was actually a better show than this time around. >> i remember talking to you saying my goodness, it was bright because of the super moon. >> you might notice it more. >> crazy things happen when there's a full moon. are we 30% more likely to have

full campaign mode in richmond, virginia. he's highlighting his accomplishments there while also reminding the crowd that he's well aware there's still plenty of work to do on the economy. we'll continue to monitor. former adviser to john edwards has testified he repeatedly urged the then democratic presidential candidate to steer clear of his mistress, and edwards refused and told him to back off. prosecutors say edwards broke federal law by accepting money from wealthy donors to pay for rielle hunter's health and living expenses. he could face up to 30 years in prison. >> tennessee state police have issued an amber alert for three sisters seen over a week ago, ages 14, 12, and 8, may be in extreme danger after they were abducted by 35-year-old adam mays. he is thought to be armed and taking the germs to arizona or mississippi. >> a controversial alabama law
5:33 pm
has attracted the attention of a number of women's groups and the a aclu. it's made to crack down on women exposed to a methamphetamine lab. now it's used to prosecute women who take a legal drug. >> hi, don. >> first, are health officials allowed to drug test a newborn without the mother's consent? >> they are. the supreme court said no, that is a circle seizure and it's illegal if you don't give consent. if they suspected a drug or alcohol problem, they would have to get a warrant. >> some are saying and arguing that the law as it's being applied now violates a woman's constitutional rights. so what are those rights? >> well, you know, a woman certainly doesn't have a constitutional right to do drugs and a pregnant woman doesn't have the constitutional right to
5:34 pm
harm her child, but there are issues, are we focusing on just pregnant women, just women, and is that discriminatory in nature. >> they don't have a right to do drugs. absolutely. they say constitutional right to privacy, no one is saying it's right to do drugs, but a constitutional right to privacy. >> that's right. there is some thought if you have a human being inside of you and you're doing something to harm that human being, the law does allow the government to step in and say you can't do that. >> harming someone else. okay, so listen, according to "new york times," the case is going to the alabama supreme court in the next few months. so what is the court going to consider when making this decision? >> well, the terms of this statute really apply to people bringing their kids to methlabs and having the meth labs explode in their faces. nowhere in the statute does it say this is about a pregnant woman or the womb or a right to
5:35 pm
fetus. nothing has to do with that law. i think the supreme court here, the state supreme court is going to strike down the law and say, listen, if you want to make it illegal to take drugs while you're pregnant, pass a law that says that. this law does not say that. >> karen, the interesting thing is i guess, you know, everyone wants to help the mothers and to help the child, right? this is about addiction, whether you're addicted, many people can't help themselves. do you actually think that this is going to deter mothers from doing drugs while they're pregnant? >> i think not. and it's going to have very bad adverse effects here because what is going to happen is the women aren't going to seek addiction treatment, aren't going to seek addiction care, and many are going to decide to have the child in their home and not going to the hospital because they don't want to be arrested. we want to protect the kids. we can't do these things if it's going to harm the child more. i think that's what's going to
5:36 pm
happen. >> the question is, too, you touched on this, where does it end? is the mothers who smoke, mothers who drink, drinking is ha harmful? if you eat bad foods that could be harmful, not getting enough sleep, not exercising, where does it end? >> where does it end, and what about the woman who is anorexic and doesn't eat enough to nourish her child. about a guy who has sex with a known meth addict? is he conspiring? it's a slip lpery slope. the law needs to be firmed up if we're going to have one. >> thank yous. >> he's known for his punches from his fist and also his mouth. boxer floyd mayworth, hear what he has to say about jail, his dad, and oh, yeah, this year. big, biggest fight. strained drir in a motor vehicle. sir, can you hear me? two, three. just hold the bag. we need a portable x-ray, please!
