6:07 pm
that's a lot. >> reporter: john burris says he is deeply troubled by the rash of deadly officer involved shootings, on the heels of the ambush killings of two santa cruz police officers, he questions whether police on a heightened sense of alert are overreacting. >> i'm concerned that you could have a rash of unnecessary police shootings where people are killed who should not be killed. >> reporter: police say their officer was left with no choice but to pull his weapon and fire at a suspect's car early yesterday morning when the driver tried to run the officer and his passenger over. >> what happens when it's a situation like this where there was no option. the driver was driving at him and there's no other type of force that's going to stop that. >> reporter: and while police admit the rash of killings is unusually high, they say it's the criminals that are at fault. >> they refuse to give up.
6:08 pm
they refuse to surrender weapons. they refuse to stop their vehicles when ordered to do so and as a result people have died. officers are scarred by that. make no mistake about it. >> reporter: of course each of these cases will be closely scrutinized and reviewed by attorneys and internal affairs investigators, perhaps only then will we know if the number of incidents are a coincidence or part after growing trend. i'm jodi hernandez, nbc bay area news. the families of the two santa cruz police officers killed last week have released some family fphotos. loran "butch" baker and elizabeth bake wrer gunned down when they went to conduct a follow-up investigation at a home. this is baker with his family. his son part of the santa cruz police department. and this is butler seen here with her two young kids. she was a ten-year veteran police officer. a mick memorial for baker and butler will be held this thursday at noon at hp pavilion in san jose.

6:28 pm
these special blends here in california, is sacramento actually guilty of helping to create a price crisis in this state? and you might think it's the oil companies driving up our prices but our own legislators are partly to blame. in a perfect world we'd all drive one of these and gas prices wouldn't even enter into our consumer calculus. but as it stands california has the most expensive gasoline in the continental u.s. does it have to be this way? >> i don't see any logical reason why there should be higher prices in california than the rest of the nation. so my guess is some people make a lot of money off this. >> reporter: before you go blaming the oil industry for making money hand over foot, let's look at what role the state is play iing in your high prices. sure there's the whole tax argument as this chart demonstrates california is nearly tops in the country in gas taxes, and it could head the list by this summer. but that's not even the primary driver of our higher gas prices.
6:29 pm
>> this is a thin market where there's not a lot of competitors to supply the product and that is kind of endemic to the fact that we have this higher quality blend that not many other states have. >> reporter: california's unique gasoline blend required by law to emit fewer pollutants than burned in other states could only be produced in a limited number of refineries and according to stanford energy expert about four companies own nearly 70% of the refinding capacity in california. so they effectively control supply and price. but he says the state is not helpless to control prices if lawmakers would just make some adjustments. for example, letting gasoline retailers lock down lower prices months in advance instead of buying right before delivery. you might compare it to buying a
6:30 pm
ticket ahead of time. >> you don't show up and buy a ticket the day you fly. you may not be able to buy. that would be an infinite price for the ticket. future contracts is only one tool lawmakers have to lower prices lending strength to the idea california has manufactured or at least partly manufactured a price crisis. another option that the professor suggests, allow california to buy gas from other states if the price difference between gas in our state and a neighboring one gets too extreme. now, again, these are proposals but they suggest consumers in the state should not have to pinch pennies just to pay for gas. it's time for sacramento lawmakers to help out. i'm sam brock. that's today's reality check. just days into the sequestration, the obama a administration says the effect of spending cuts are already being felt at the airports. security lines are longer with fewer tsa and u.s. customs agents and overtime is all but
6:31 pm
eliminated. in the fall schools could suffer teacher layoffs. president obama hopes the sequester will pressure republicans into a tax hike on the rich with gop lawmakers say that's not likely. >> eventually a lot of people are going to feel some pain. that's why we've got to keep on working to reduce our deficit in a balanced way. >> i think the president miscalculated and thought sooner or later we would agree to revenues in this case and that's never been in the cards. >> a measure that would extend a pay freeze for federal employees including congress and would ensure undocumented immigrants are not released. it provides funding for embassy security. a pub llicity stunt, that's what the white house is calling dennis rodman's trip to north korea. they say north korea should focus on the well-being of its people instead of hosting celebrity basketball players.

using the medicine for the past several months and i fully expected the baby to have gone back up. >> reporter: but the doctor said she was shocked when the baby had no signs of the virus. several more lab tests found no trace of hiv. experts are calling this a functional cure and suspect the early treatment left no time for the virus to hide out in the body. that early treatment hours after birth is now being considered for babies at high risk of being born with hiv. at silicon valley pediatricians in san jose, christine says while the approach may help the 130 babies born in the u.s. every year who have hiv passed on during pregnancy, the single case will not likely help people living with hiv now. >> but i would hesitate to say that anyone with hiv today can take news of one child in their infancy period could, therefore, become cleared of the virus. >> reporter: surprisingly the little girl's viral loads were still undetectable a year after
6:45 pm
