are going up. the average price for a used vehicle is now over 20-thousand dollars. that's according to the auto website edmunds-dot-com that's the highest since 2005, and it's up 3-and-a-half percent from last year. and because of that, the average monthly payment for a used vehicle is 400 dollars a month -- that's a record high. higher interest rates are also partly to blame. and we're paying for our love for s-u-v's and trucks which are just more expensive than sedans. so if you are looking for a bargain, think about buying a smaller car.

( marty ) president trump has blamed the massive and destructive california wildfires on mismanagement by the forestry service ...the president also threatened to take away federal funding unless they quote "remedy now". kron4's ella sogomonian reports scientists say global warming is a driving factor for the huge fires. sot: ella sogomonian, @ellasogomonian//"scientists are identifying what they say is a clear link between the earth's warmer temperatures and dryer conditions for the reason we are facing enormous wildfires that are harder to fight." the deadly camp fire has scorched 148 thousand acres of northern california land killed more than 70 people while more than one thousand remain missing. enviornmental researchers found global warming is contributing to the staggering size and frequency of the deadly wildfires burning in the golden state and across the globe in recent years . sot: zeke hausfather, climate scientist berkeley earth// "this year has been one of the driest and hottest years in california so its just created a tinderbox for fires to start that are then driven

new flights are taking off at sfo, making vacations down under easier than ever. travel enthusiast dana rebmann joins us now.. we're so lucky in the bay area. countless flights give us options to destinations all around the world. and we just gained another nonstop flight to get excited about - qantas now flies straight to melbourne, australia, four times a week. and there's a multitude of reasons to think about hopping onboard. so let's go for a tour. melbourne has a colorful love of street art. you can't walk in the city's central business district without seeing street art. spots like hosier lane, degraves street, and ac/dc lane are the best- known stretches, but it's everywhere. the art is constantly being painted over and changed, so there's always something new to see. if you're a hard core fan, localing tours has an option
7:49 am
where you can visit a working artist's studio. (4hrs, 2 people, $480) it's a long flight.. (15 hrs, 35 mins) you might have some jetlag, so pick a day to sleep in, skip breakfast, and then just eat your way through queen victoria market. this isn't a tourist driven attraction. it officially opened in 1878, but it was unofficially operating before then. as a visitor, you're not shopping from the butcher or the seafood markets, but when you're accustomed to a supermarket, it's fun to get a glimpse of the bustle. the prepared foods, on the other hand, are fair game. offerings come from around the globe, everything from pasta, to kangaroo, fine cheeses, and chocolates. there's also stall after stall of fresh produce. it's a huge space, and if the thought of exploring seems a little overwhelming you can take a
7:50 am
guided queen vic market foodie tour. about two hours long, you'll meet sellers, get buying tips, and of course eat! ($50p/p) ((2 shot )) with good food, typically comes good wine. the yarra valley is melbourne's equivalent to our napa and sonoma. (it's less than an hour drive.) one of the best ways to get the lay of the land is from above, in a hot air balloon. the landscape isn't just vines, agriculture of all sorts are strong here. it's an early morning, up at 4:30am and on move by 5am, but you just magically seem to forget all about it. i stayed at a property called chateau yering hotel and they stay in constant contact with pilots, so staff only wakes you up if the weather is clear and everything's a go. ($295 p/p flight, hotel starting at $284) phillip island is a must for animal lovers. about 90
7:51 am
minutes from melbourne, phillip island nature parks are not-for-profit; the boat rides to seal rocks is just one example of the types of tours they offer. this is home to australia's largest fur seal colony, about 30,000 of them. the day i visited, 5 to 8-thousand were hanging out. in addition to the close-up wildlife views, the coastline is pretty spectacular. when the boat is moving, everyone has to be seated, with seat belts, because every now and then the captain likes to have some fun, zig zagging around, before heading back to solid ground. ($40p/p) for animal packed day, visit the seals in
7:52 am
the afternoon, then spend your evening with penguins. the summerland peninsula, in the southwest area of phillip island, is home to a colony of little penguins - about 32,000 of them. the little penguins spend a great deal of time at sea, but every night at sunset some make the trip back to land, scurrying up the beach under the moonlight. during the winter, there's an average of 700 penguins a night. during the summer there can be up to 4-thousand. where they were born, is where they come out of the water. people watching are asked to quiet, and there's no photography. penguins don't seem to mind people, but they don't like bright lights. this stretch of land used to be a housing development, but people and penguins don't necessarily make good neighbors, so in 1985 the victorian government initiated a land buy back within the colony, and by 2010 had bought back all 175 homes. the process repeats itself in the morning, 60 to 90 minutes before sunrise, before all the predatory birds get out of bed, they head out to sea.

under easier than ever. travel enthusiast dana rebmann joins us now.. we're so lucky in the bay area. countless straight to australia, four times a week. and there's a multitude of reasons to think about hopping onboard. so let's go for a tour. melbourne has a colorful love of street art. you can't walk in the city's central business district without seeing street art. spots like hosier lane, degraves street, and ac/dc lane are the best- known stretches, but it's everywhere. the art is constantly being painted over and changed, so there's always something new to see. if you're a hard core fan, localing tours has an option where you can visit a working artist's studio.

8:49 am
people, $480) it's a long flight.. (15 hrs, 35 mins) you might have some jetlag, so pick a day to sleep in, skip breakfast, and then just eat your way through queen victoria market. this isn't a tourist driven attraction. it officially opened in 1878, but it was unofficially operating before then. as a visitor, you're not shopping from the butcher or the seafood markets, but when you're accustomed to a supermarket, it's fun to get a glimpse of the bustle. the prepared foods, on the other hand, are fair game. offerings come from around the globe, everything from pasta, to kangaroo, fine cheeses, and chocolates. there's also stall after stall of fresh produce. it's a huge space, and if the thought of exploring seems a little overwhelming you can take a guided queen vic market foodie tour. about two hours long, you'll meet sellers, get buying tips, and of course eat!

the best ways to get the lay of the land is from above, in a hot air balloon. the landscape isn't just vines, agriculture of all sorts are strong here. it's an early morning, up at 4:30am and on move by 5am, but you just magically seem to forget all about it. i stayed at a property called chateau yering hotel and they stay in constant contact with pilots, so staff only wakes you up if the weather is clear and everything's a go. ($295 p/p flight, hotel starting at $284) phillip island is a must for animal lovers. about 90 minutes from melbourne, phillip island nature parks are not-for-profit; the boat rides to seal rocks is just one example of the types of tours they offer. this is home to australia's largest fur seal colony, about 30,000 of them. the day i visited, 5 to 8-thousand were hanging out. in addition to the close-up wildlife views, the coastline is pretty spectacular. when the boat is moving, everyone has to be seated, with seat belts, because every now and then the captain likes to have some fun, zig zagging around, before heading back to solid ground. ($40p/p) for animal packed day, visit the seals in the afternoon, then spend your

evening with penguins. the summerland peninsula, in the southwest area of phillip island, is home to a colony of little penguins - about 32,000 of them. the little penguins spend a great deal of time at sea, but every night at sunset some make the trip back to land, scurrying up the beach under the moonlight. during the winter, there's an average of 700 penguins a night. during the summer there can be up to 4-thousand. where they were born, is where they come out of the water. people watching are asked to quiet, and there's no photography. penguins don't seem to mind people, but they don't like bright lights. this stretch of land used to be a housing development, but people and penguins don't necessarily make good neighbors, so in 1985 the victorian government initiated a land buy back within the colony, and by 2010 had bought back all 175 homes. the process repeats itself in the morning, 60 to 90 minutes before sunrise, before all the predatory birds get out of bed, they head out to sea.

much lower than it was but still considered unhealthy. and according to experts, the wind patterns this week are to blame for the increase we'll be seeing today. < "the smoke today is much worse. i went into air now dot com and in my opinion, its worse than what they say. from my standpoint. reporter: from the person that's breathing it in? from the person that is breathing it in.">now it's not expected to be as bad as it was on friday - we're hearing that it should stay within the unhealthy range which falls within the 151 to 200 range and that it will likely stay like this until we see some rain later this week, and please keep in mind that the bay area is still under a spare the air advisory, banning among other things, outdoor burning so grilling and barbecuing outdoors is prohibited.

new flights are taking off at sfo, making vacations down under easier than ever. travel enthusiast dana rebmann joins us now.. we're so lucky in the bay area. countless flights give us options to destinations all around the world. and we just gained another nonstop flight to get excited about - qantas now flies straight to melbourne, australia, four times a week. and there's a multitude of reasons to think about hopping onboard. so let's go for a tour. melbourne has a colorful love of street art. you can't walk in the city's central business district without seeing street art. spots like hosier lane, degraves street, and ac/dc lane are the best- known stretches, but it's everywhere. the art is constantly being painted over and changed, so there's always something new to see. if

you're a hard core fan, localing tours has an option where you can visit a working artist's studio. (4hrs, 2 people, $480) it's a long flight.. (15 hrs, 35 mins) you might have some jetlag, so pick a day to sleep in, skip breakfast, and then just eat your way through queen victoria market. this isn't a tourist driven attraction. it officially opened in 1878, but it was unofficially operating before then. as a visitor, you're not shopping from the butcher or the seafood markets, but when you're accustomed to a supermarket, it's fun to get a glimpse of the bustle. the prepared foods, on the other hand, are fair game. offerings come from around the globe, everything from pasta, to kangaroo, fine cheeses, and chocolates. there's also stall after stall of fresh produce. it's a

at a property called chateau yering hotel and they stay in constant contact with pilots, so staff only wakes you up if the weather is clear and everything's a go. ($295 p/p flight, hotel starting at $284) phillip island is a must for animal lovers. about 90 minutes from melbourne, phillip island nature parks are not-for-profit; the boat rides to seal rocks is just one example of the types of tours they offer. this is home to australia's largest fur seal colony, about 30,000 of them. the day i visited, 5 to 8-thousand were hanging out. in addition to the close-up wildlife views, the coastline is pretty spectacular. when the boat is moving, everyone has to be seated, with seat belts, because every now and then the captain likes to have some fun, zig zagging around, before heading back to solid ground. ($40p/p) for animal packed day, visit the seals in

the afternoon, then spend your evening with penguins. the summerland peninsula, in the southwest area of phillip island, is home to a colony of little penguins - about 32,000 of them. the little penguins spend a great deal of time at sea, but every night at sunset some make the trip back to land, scurrying up the beach under the moonlight. during the winter, there's an average of 700 penguins a night. during the summer there can be up to 4-thousand. where they were born, is where they come out of the water. people watching are asked to quiet, and there's no photography. penguins don't seem to mind people, but they don't like bright lights. this stretch of land used to be a housing development, but people and penguins don't necessarily make good neighbors, so in 1985 the victorian government initiated a land buy back
