just before 7 a.m. live in san jose, maria medina, kpix 5. the white house is responding to newly published information regarding president trump's 2005 taxes. the information was based on two pages of an irs form supplied to journalist david cay johnston, who in turn presented them on msnbc last night. the white house confirmed details before the show aired saying president trump paid $38 million on an income of more than $150 million that year. the sources of his income and how his taxes were computed are unclear. johnston says that releasing more tax documents could answer questions. >> so maybe there's stuff in those returns that will tell us about the russians. >> president trump promised to release his tax returns on numerous occasions while running for office but never did. the president is expected to announce a review of federal fuel economy and emissions rules today. the review opens the door to lower gas mileage requirements
6:02 am
and less stringent controls on carbon dioxide emissions. the white house is also reportedly considering a new executive order that would revoke california's ability to set its own tighter limits. california is the only state allowed to do so under the clean air act but right now, other states are allowed to adopt california's standards as their own. one year since express lanes made their debut on 580 we have the data that shows how drivers are changing their commute. kpix 5's anne makovec is live in dublin this morning on what the numbers reveal. anne. >> reporter: yeah, they call it the lexus lane because you can pay a little bit more money as you can see right now 50 cents more for a single person to use the carpool lane. so is it worth 50 cents to make your commute a little easier? since these express lanes opened up in february, 2016, one -- february 2015, a year ago, the 580 express lanes have
6:03 am
recorded more than 7 million trips. in january, 27,700 express lane trips a day. they had average speeds of 5 to 23 miles per hour faster than the other lanes. now, these lanes run throughout the tri-valley corridor. we're talking dublin, pleasanton, and livermore for about 14 miles here along 580. and it's sort of a carpool lane with a twist. and solo drivers who choose to pay a toll which varies depending on the traffic congestion, can use it. it is in operation from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. and you have to use a fast track to use it. in fact, a fast track "fastrak flex" to tell how many people are in your car. we have numbers on the use. as far as the morning commute westbound 61% of trips begin in the tri-valley. 39% are coming
6:04 am
state from the altamont pass. now, eastbound the evening commute, 55% start as soon as they can to get on these express lanes. 45% are entering within the tri-valley. and the price? really varies. average is about $2 to use the carpool lane but it can get up past $9 when things are really jammed up. live in livermore, anne makevoc, kpix 5. >> what happens to drivers who have been using the carpool lane? >> they can still use the carpool lane for free if you qualify if you have three or more people in your car. but you do need one of those "fastrak flex" tags so they can determine that you are an actual carpool. and your lane is a little bit more jammed up than it would have been otherwise because you do have the people who are opting for the lexus lane option. >> there's a lot to keep in order with that! >> you're right about that. >> but roqui keeps that all in
6:05 am
order for us. >> yeah. the express lane might be worth it because here's a look at the altamont pass traffic headed into livermore. it's slow per usual. you're moving at just 12 miles per hour off 205 and then up to 30 once you hit north flynn road into livermore where anne was just talking about those express lanes. now here's a live look at the dublin interchange slow again per usual and let's head to talk about the county where we have a new problem to talk about westbound 4 before port chicago highway. it's a solo car crash blocking the left lane and causing a major backup at just 9 miles per hour all the way almost to loveridge road. so give yourself extra time to get through there. then down to the bay bridge toll plaza, where those metering lights are on, backing traffic up, traffic is a little worse than usual because of an earlier crash in the treasure island tunnel. >> i think icky the spider is
6:06 am
coming back. >> i see. crawling across the your camera lens there. good morning everybody, what we like to do is start off with what a cooler day it's going to be for you. 10 degrees in many locations. 60 at half moon bay. 70 down from 81 to 71 in san jose. east bay you were 85 yesterday in pleasanton. today low 60s with increasing cloud cover. it will be mostly cloudy across the north bay today in the 60s. and if we see any kind of sprinkles or light showers, primarily right there in the far reaches of the north bay. otherwise, i'm stealing roqui's traffic camera so you can see the fog that's pouring in off the pacific ocean knocking back our temperatures. yesterday it was 76 in san francisco. right now 52 going up to the 60s which is a little more seasonal. we have a couple of different things going on.
6:07 am
first of all, the enhancement of the marine layer. you see it right there. if you were to look at the satellite computer models you would be looking at a summertime weather pattern with clouds at the coast and clear inland but we have the disturbance to the north of us which will make it partly to mostly cloudy about everywhere today. the winds have been slight under 10 miles per hour for the most part, san francisco now more of the onshore push to 7 miles per hour. a southwest breeze at fairfield at 11. now, meanwhile the visibility has been an issue. it has been improving up to a mile and a half in the bay area. still less than a mile in santa rosa due to the marine layer. temperatures today with that mostly cloudy to the north partly cloudy everywhere else in the 60s and a few low 70s. we are going to talk about rain three days of rain that's coming up in our next forecast. roberta, thank you. the state senate is taking a closer look at what led to december's deadly warehouse fire in oakland. today in sacramento, an oversight committee will hold a hearing to figure out how to prevent another tragic event
6:08 am
like the one at the arts collective known as ghost ship. 36 people died in the fire. the committee will discuss possible reforms for local governments and ways to make sure that they are probably equipped to inspect buildings and enforce fire codes. in the wake of the tragedy, oakland's embattled fire chief theresa reed is stepping down from the job. she will retire may 5. deputy chief mark hoffman and darren white will lead the department until the city selects another. two california contractors have been fined by state regulators after one worker was killed and another injured fighting the soberanes fire. the blaze is the most expensive wildfire in the united states histories. time now 6:08. a frightening situation in southern california where someone is opening fire on cars on the freeway. >> and why authorities believe

6:39 am
traffic is really heavy. and here are some interesting numbers on who is actually using the express lanes: >> reporter: now, remember, if you want to use the express lanes, you need not only a valid fastrak but a valid fastrak express tag and that's how they tell how many people are in your car because you can still use that lane free if you are a valid carpool. live in livermore, anne makovec, kpix 5. in the north bay, investigators are piecing together a murder mystery. a car crash leads to the remains of a missing woman who has been missing for more than two years. annie bailly's remains were spotted by motorists who crashed their car near point reyes national seashore.
