6:24 am
before the half but draymond plays a little qb himself. he didn't dribble out the clock. instead, it's a touchdown pass to kevin durant for a quick hoop. but durant didn't need a great pass to score. he takes 13 shots, makes 12 of them, and only shoots one three on the night. it's the most efficient shooting night of his career. he and steph curry both scored 28 points. and the warriors win it 118- 103. >> i felt like he could have been 24 for 25 if he wanted but he was distributing the ball and trying to get everybody involved and just he was brilliant. >> denver did not play last night which means the warriors take a half game lead in the western conference. the two teams play next tuesday which could decide who gets the one seed in the play-offs. >> in the college ranks, usf promoted assistant coach todd golden to replace kyle smith who took the washington state job. golden knows the bay area well. he was a guard for saint mary's to a pair of ncaa tournaments.

6:27 am
and there's nothing standard about that. with 10 resorts less than an hour from salt lake international airport, mountain time means more time on more resorts on the greatest snow on earth. it means more time with the kids and more time away from the kids. ski more, shred more, chill more, cheers more

gas prices in california are suddenly spiking. right now, a gallon will cost you $1 more than the national average. emily turner has now. so we all want to ask, why? >> reporter: well, that is the question. why!! it's not good news for drivers in the state, especially those on a budget. we are all paying nearly 40 cents more a gallon here than we were just this time last month. not only is california higher than the national average, they are even higher in the bay area. in san francisco, the average price per gallon is $3.68. it's $3.57 in san jose and a penniless in oakland right now. now, compare that to the national average of $2.67. we wish. the spike is a direct result of the bad air you may have seen over the weekend. a malfunction at the valero refinery in benicia at the
6:34 am
beginning of the month caused this thick gray smoke you see to be pumped out of the refinery for more than a week. the refinery was temporarily shut down as a result of that causing those prices to jump. >> i think it takes a little out of everyone's pocket. so i think everyone feels it. i think my next car will be an electric car. >> well, we can all certainly sympathize with that. there were also some issues at a refinery in southern california which doesn't help the situation because the state has such strict laws and environmental standards on gas. we can't simply import it from somewhere else when we have a shortage so when there are issues in our refineries, there's a real cause and effect that's felt here more than other states. at levi's stadium a new battle is brewing between the 49ers and the city of santa clara. officials who oversee the stadium are looking into a more than $643,000 floor maintenance bill. the city says it didn't approve it. the city sent the 49ers a

6:36 am
last week. we are starting with helmet nachos that everyone loves. there's a launch test kitchen featuring rotating cuisine from various local chefs. so kicking off that new program with oakland's own brown sugar kitchen and the market will also be new. featuring new technology that makes it faster and easier to get what you need and then get back to the game. >> as we evaluate our fan experience year by year we are doing everything we can to improve it from the new food and beverage partnership to new premium offerings and amenities. >> reporter: the coliseum also has new premium features likely they are recliners. right in the stands. it will be like you're in your living room but even better because you'll be just as comfortable watching the game live. but, there are only two tickets left for those seats for the entire season. they are really popular. so i can't blame anyone. they look comfortable. there's also some cocktail

new york and boston and washington, d.c. back to you. >> thank you. 6:38. taking a live look at the u.s. capitol this morning, where a major congressional financial committee is set to vote on a marijuana banking bill today. the secure and fair enforcement or safe banking act is meant to give banks reassurance that working with cannabis businesses will not result in a federal crime. more financial institution are accepting pot business accounts but many do not. that forces many companies to operate on a cash only basis making them potential targets of crime. a final vote on the pot banking bill is expected to be under way later today. congressional lawmakers are now reacting to the president's surprise decision to join a lawsuit seeking to invalidate the entire affordable care act. if the law is overturned it could put health coverage for some 20 million americans in jeopardy! according to cnn, health and human services secretary and the attorney general oppose the
