    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- At certain gas stations, you might find some sticker shock, but in reverse. Can a price of $3.29 per gallon be real these days? Yes, but it's for E85, not gasoline."E85 is a blended fuel that has up to 85% ethanol in it," said Megan McKernan, manager of the AAA Automotive Research Center in Los Angeles.E85 is made from corn, and its largest market is in the Midwest, where the corn is grown. I did a story on E85 14 years ago at the only station in Greater Los Angeles that sold it, Conserv Fuel in Brentwood. Today, its available at over 300 stations in California, dispensed alongside gasoline. But you need a special kind of vehicle to use it."Flex-fuel vehicles are built to be able to handle this blend of up to 85% ethanol," McKernan said. "It just depends on how the engine is manufactured."Typically, from domestic brands, and often those models that are likely to end up in fleets. One word of caution: fuel economy will drop a bit using E85 instead of gasoline....

    In this article UBERUber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi speaks at a product launch event in San Francisco, California on September 26, 2019.Philip Pacheco | AFP via Getty ImagesDespite losing some investor confidence amid continued Covid headwinds, Uber could be positioning itself for a comeback in 2022, analysts say. "We think this year will be different given the outlook for adj. EBITDA, and focus on figuring out grocery despite the mobility uncertainty," Needham analysts said in a Friday note. The firm named the rideshare stock its top pick for 2022, though lowered its price target to $75 a share from $77 a share. Uber said in its fourth quarter it expects adjusted EBITDA of $25 million to $75 million, which would be its second quarter of profitability. CEO Dara Khosrowshahi told Bloomberg last month he expects the company to be near the high-end of that forecast. "Post-Covid we're an all-weather company and think we can succeed and grow really in every environment," Khosrowshahi said, adding that he's "confident" the company will hit all-time highs in 2022. Jefferies analysts also said Friday they see...
    By Matt McFarland | CNN Business A wider group of Tesla owners who paid up to $10,000 for what the company calls its “full self-driving” software can now ask the automaker for access to a test version of the feature. But they’ll first have to show that they’re a sufficiently safe driver by allowing Tesla to analyze data on their driving behavior. Approved drivers may then get access to “full self-driving” beta software as soon as Oct. 9, according to a tweet from Tesla CEO Elon Musk. A small group of private citizens, no more than a few thousand at most, have already been testing the system for nearly a year, and the videos they’ve posted on social media of Teslas attempting to drive themselves through traffic have received both cautious praise and derision. Tesla has not released information on exactly how many drivers, who they were, or how they were selected to be in the first “full self-driving” public beta test. Tesla has been criticized for not getting consent from the pedestrians, cyclists and other drivers who share the...

    PLANO, Texas (AP) — Authorities were trying to determine if there was a connection between two incidents in separate Dallas suburbs Sunday, one which resulted in the wounding of a man who opened fire inside a police station and another which involved the death of a Lyft driver. Plano Police said the man, who had been behaving erratically, entered the lobby of the department’s headquarters at around 12:15 p.m. on Sunday. The second time the man went inside the lobby he displayed a handgun, raised it and fired in the direction of a civilian employee who was helping a resident. The employee and the visitor took shelter in a nearby room. Two officers responded to the scene and shot and injured the man, who was later taken to a hospital. His condition was not immediately known. The man’s name was not immediately released by authorities. No other individuals were injured during the incident, police said. “What could have been a horrific tragedy was avoided, thanks to the swift and effective action of our Plano police...
    A federal court judge says Uber’s driver-rating system may be affected by passengers’ racial bias. In a hearing this week about a lawsuit against the Bay Area ride-hailing giant by an Asian driver claiming the star-based ratings system puts non-white drivers at risk of termination, San Francisco U.S. District Court Judge Vince Chhabria said that “the inference that Uber’s practice is racially discriminatory is … strong,” according to a new report. Terminated driver Thomas Liu is seeking class-action status, to bring into the lawsuit “hundreds, if not thousands” of non-white former drivers his suit claims were fired because of the rating system. “Uber has long known that relying on a system that depends on passenger evaluation of drivers is discriminatory, as Uber is aware that passengers frequently discriminate against Uber drivers,” the suit filed in October alleges. Uber did not respond to a request for comment. Liu’s suit claims that to keep their jobs, Uber drivers must maintain a minimum average rating that “has frequently been set very high, even close to a perfect a score.” Liu was terminated because...
    (CNN)A study that found teachers -- not students -- were the probable source of several school-related Covid-19 outbreaks highlights the need to maintain mask and distancing guidelines and to prioritize teachers and school staff for vaccination, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Monday. The "concerning report," published Monday, details an investigation of Covid-19 spread in at least six public elementary schools in a Georgia district in early winter, when there was high community spread, the director said.Here are the states allowing teachers to get Covid-19 vaccines"The two main reasons for the spread of Covid-19 in these schools were inadequate physical distancing and mask adherence," Walensky said. "In the schools, physical distancing of at least 6 feet was not possible because of the high number of students in class, as well as because of classroom layouts."The findings show how important it is for schools to strictly adhere to the CDC's five key Covid-19 mitigation strategies, Walensky said. Those strategies are: universal and correct wearing of masks; physical distancing; washing hands; cleaning facilities and improving ventilation;...
    By Robert Preidt, HealthDay Reporter (HealthDay) THURSDAY, Feb. 18, 2021 (HealthDay News) -- Worried about what damage the polluted air outside might pose to your health during your work commute? New research suggests you might want to worry more about the chemicals you are exposed to inside your car. Benzene and formaldehyde are used in automobile manufacturing, and both are known to cause cancer at or above certain levels of exposure. Benzene also poses a risk of reproductive and developmental problems. Benzene is used to produce synthetic fibers, and formaldehyde is a binder in plastics. University of California, Riverside researchers calculated the daily amount of benzene and formaldehyde being inhaled by California drivers with commutes of at least 20 minutes a day. Based on based on average 30-minute commute times, up to 90% of people in Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange, Santa Clara, and Alameda counties have at least a 10% chance of exceeding cancer risk from inhaling the two chemicals, the researchers concluded. "Of course, there is a range of exposure that depends on how long you're in the...
    Uber have told their users in California that they may be suspending service in the state, after a judge ruled that ride-sharing companies must classify drivers in that state as employees rather than independent contractors.   An Uber user, Krista Maxwell, published a screenshot of the message on Twitter on Tuesday night, which read: 'Ridesharing in CA may be suspended'.

    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — School bus drivers can't be “mask police," the president of the New Hampshire School Transportation Association told state lawmakers. “They need to focus on their driving, keep their eyes on the road," Mark Raposo said Tuesday, New Hampshire Public Radio reported. Raposo said as school districts plan for the fall during the coronavirus pandemic, additional staff may be necessary to monitor students on the bus and help with sanitation between runs. ___ REMOTE LEARNING New Hampshire's education commissioner doesn't think the state will need to go back to a statewide remote learning model. But with the severity of the coronavirus still in flux, it could still happen on an individual school level, the Concord Monitor reported. “Of course I can’t predict the future. Not sure what the future will bring. But my sense today would be that we will not find ourselves again in the circumstance where statewide we have to go to remote instruction and support,” Frank Edelblut testified before lawmakers Tuesday. “I suspect … that there may be incidences that happen in our institutions...
    A Massachusetts coalition has asked Congress to approve undocumented immigrants to have driver’s licenses. In addition to allowing them to drive without fear of being arrested, it would be a job opportunity as many jobs depend on having a license. The coalition has called for the approval of the bill before July 31, 2020 A Massachusetts coalition is pressing for the state to follow in the footsteps of 15 other regions that have passed legislation granting driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants and are calling on the state Senate to approve by July 31 the bill that will allow them to drive without fear, according to the agency Efe. The bill has the backing of broad support from state businesses ranging from the gastronomy, health, agriculture, or service sector, among others. A coalition of organizations, including the Pioneer Valley Workers Center, has claimed the card for all residents of the state, regardless of their immigration status, as has happened in others such as New Jersey and most recently New York, where it became effective the law in 2019.
