"Breezy with increasing clouds later, highs in the low 70s. Good morning, I'm Bruce Allen. And I'm Joan Jones, and our top local stories this morning, and we're following a developing story out of northeast D.C. where there's an active barricade situation. The suspect whose barricaded himself inside a residential building near east capital street is 27 year old Avery miler. The man suspected of killing a Baltimore man who had been installing solar panels in southeast earlier this year. D.C. police say that officers spotted myler on Ames street northeast this morning, and that's when he fired shots at the officers. No, it's not clear if any of them were hit. Then barricaded himself inside the building. We do have a reporter at the scene. We'll get an update in less than ten minutes. The D.C. council is considering giving residents a $100 to use on metro rail and buses. The D.C. council committee on transportation has approved the district resident transit subsidy, council member Charles Allen, says the program will provide a significant investment to metro each year. Now, all D.C. residents will be eligible for this program. Public transit is for everyone, and it should be treated just like any other public good. The same as our roads, there are sidewalks or public schools that are libraries. The median household income in D.C. is nearly $91,000 a year, Allen says there are no income restrictions for the subsidy because when considering the cost of an income verification program, it's cheaper to just provide the money to all residents. The council is expected to vote on the subsidy this fall. Particularly on WTO P news. We choose commuting routes based on traffic and how long it takes to get to work, but cost is also a factor in this morning, we're getting a look at what it costs to use our area's newest toll lanes. Where you can choose whether you want to use the 9 miles of express lanes to centerville. The total operator says on day one of weekday morning commutes, the average

"Having to choose to put gas in their vehicles to get to work to earn something, and then they have to choose rents next. And then the utilities are last. She says, in many cases, folks are still paying off old bills. When it gets cold and those bills got higher, we're not sure how they're going to make it. Mike Morello WTO news. All D.C. residents would be able to get as much as $100 a month to ride metro under a bill approved today by a council committee. Under the plan introduced by council member Charles Allen, participants would get enough money each month to bring their smart trip card balance up to $100. The bill would also dedicate at least $10 million a year to improving and expanding bus and transit service in the city, this so called transit equity fund would prioritize historically underserved areas where residents are especially dependent on public transit, the bill was approved by council's committee on transportation in the environment today and heads next to the committee of the whole. Well, it's like something out of a Hollywood sci-fi. Maryland scientists are watching a spacecraft that was launched nearly a year ago to see if it hits a small, harmless asteroid this evening. We should know soon if they were successful. Our spacecraft, it's only about size of a fridge. Olivier barn away, planetary geophysicist at Johns Hopkins applied physics laboratory, says that fridge sized craft traveled at 14,000 miles an hour toward the asteroid. But the asteroid itself is about a football field and a half in size. The goal, he says, was to just nudge the asteroid to make a tiny adjustment in its period of orbit. You know, it's we're moving it several centimeters per second out of the way. Barn away says they're expecting in a couple of weeks to see the asteroid has moved about a 180° from where it had been. The reason they're doing this. So that we can actually prepare for doing this in the future, moving something out of our way if it's coming towards us. Here, the entire interview on the DMV

"This time Tapping into our Bloomberg intelligence analyst covering some 2000 companies and 130 industries worldwide, a sharp hike in cost and food price inflation has seen food retailers prospects diverging and major European competitors like car four and Tesco they're facing challenges with discount competitors for more we're pleased to welcome Bloomberg intelligence senior analyst Charles Allen. Charles, give us a sense here, inflation's everywhere. It's a global phenomenon for the most part. It's at the gas pump, but it's really at the supermarket as well. Talk to us about how that is in the UK and Europe. I think what we're seeing though is that consumers are behaving in a different way. First of all, they're going as you alluded to shop at discount stores where things are cheaper. Also, the stores have a smaller selection, so you're not tempted to buy so much. So for the large supermarkets who historically have liked inflation because they tended to increase margins at those moments. And now under somewhat pressure. And I think this is really about the maturity of the market. When we look back into the 1980s and 1990s, when car four and Tesco are now all doing really well, when inflation was made to up a single digit, they were actually the low cost operators and they were gaining market share. You know, when I read your research, Charles have talked over the years, I've come to understand how thin the margins are for most supermarket chains. So as I think about some of these price increases for food items and consumer goods, I wonder to what degree these supermarkets are in fact passing along price increases as opposed to taking an in their margin, which is already pretty thin. Yeah. I mean, broadly speaking, they have to pass the prices a lot. It is kind of, as you say, the margins are so thin. They just can't afford not to. I mean, I think it's all around the margin and sort of in a different sense. It's just there's a slightly different aspect to this in the senses that they're probably selling a bit less. People are cutting back on the amount of items they buy. And so within the supermarket itself is you've just got pressure on your total amount of volume going through the store. And at the same time, your costs are going up because you've obviously got all the energy costs, all the fuel costs, the wage costs that are increasing. And so this is what's probably putting the pressure on the profit margin that we're seeing is that the top line is having to increase with the price rises, but the costs are going up as fast, if not a bit faster. Are there is there material difference between the environment in the UK versus the continent? Well, I think the UK is probably a little bit worse at the moment in the sense that the wage squeeze seems more acute and almost certainly Brexit has added sort of 2% to the inflation rate is just forgot about that. Because it's just more difficult to trade with your now and realistically Britain and the reports about half the food. So it's coming from elsewhere. So there are definitely extra factors there. France has been pretty good about making sure that consumers are protected from some of the price rises, particularly on utilities, which is probably making it a bit easier for consumers there. But I mean, in almost every country, Germany, the Netherlands, everything, we're seeing the same sort of trends. And it's just difficult to retailers. How the shares performed. Obviously, the equities across the board have been under pressure all year, but just wondering how the supermarket chains have fared recently. Well, I think we'll see that with the exception of a few of the discounters and to a degree car four, which is a bit of a one off. Is actually sort of come down with the market and in some cases of underperformed the market. And I think this is what's different from what we had seen in previous inflation repairs. When you expected the supermarkets to outperform because you saw their profits and everything as a safe haven when inflation was picking up. People I think correctly are much more cautious about the prospects at the moment. And the war in Ukraine. It's obviously, I think it's such a probably a bigger issue for Europe, obviously, and European companies and I wonder if that's impacting just the food chain, the supermarket, the retail side of it as well. Do you see it? Well, I mean, actually, there were a couple of weeks slightly unusual. I mean, one is there's obviously the impact on the soft commodity prices that are actually people are seeing globally. And that's going to roll over into next year because obviously you don't put weed or sunflower oil directly into a food stuff. It needs to be processed and go through. Is actually what we are seeing and how long this will go on. It's actually the companies that are in Poland have actually had a bit of a boost because the very large refugee population. And it's been as high as a million people, which is adds two and a half percent to the Polish population. They have to eat as well. And so we've there's been a little bit of I mean, they've just done a little bit better in terms of sales in Poland as that. But I mean, I don't think anyone thinks this is a good thing. And I'm sure that all the retailers are operating in Poland will prefer that they weren't seeing that boost, but it's there. It's there. All right, our thanks to Bloomberg intelligence analyst Charles Allen, we appreciate that. Coming up on the program, U.S. lawmakers are working on a $370 billion reconciliation bill with a focus on climate and energy, and we look into some of the key takeaways for the oil and gas sector.
