Elon Musk sets the record straight on FTX's Sam Bankman-Fried and Twitter shares

Twitter CEO Elon Musk is setting the record straight on FTX’s disgraced founder Sam Bankman-Fried and his alleged ownership of Twitter shares.

In a series of tweets Wednesday afternoon, Musk called out a "fake news" report that alleged Bankman-Fried rolled his $100 million holdings of Twitter, when it was public, into private shares.

Musk discredited a report, written by Semafor’s Liz Hoffman, alleging Bankman-Fried "owns a sizable chunk of a now privately held and debt-laden Twitter." Hoffman cited a "FTX balance sheet prepared after the takeover closed on Oct. 28 and circulated to investors earlier this month."

Crypto assets worth $740M recovered in FTX bankruptcy so far

The company contracted to recover assets of the failed cryptocurrency exchange FTX says it has managed to recover more than $740 million so far.

However, it is just a fraction of the potentially billions of dollars likely missing from the company's coffers.

The custodial company BitGo was hired in the hours after FTX filed for bankruptcy on Nov. 11.

The assets recovered were disclosed in court filings on Wednesday.

The biggest worry for many of FTX's customers is they'll never see their money again.

FTX failed because its founder and former CEO Sam Bankman-Fried and his lieutenants used customer assets to make bets in FTX's closely related trading firm, Alameda Research.

Thanksgiving gas prices highest recorded but Americans still hitting the road

Gas prices over Thanksgiving 2022 are the highest ever recorded, according to AAA. However, that's not stopping Americans from traveling over the long holiday weekend. 

The national average price for a regular gallon of gasoline is about $3.60, the highest figure for Thanksgiving since AAA has been tracking this data since 2000. 

Last year, costs were still elevated, sitting around $3.40, according to AAA. Gas was also selling at that level in 2012. Historically, AAA data shows that the national average is more like $2.50 this time of year.

Thanksgiving travelers faced major price increases for airfare, hotels

Thanksgiving travelers faced major price hurdles this holiday.

Decades-high inflation, coupled with a continued travel rebound stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, is leading to higher prices for just about everything travel-related, including airfare, hotels and gas. Inflation cooled slightly in October, but still hit 7.7%.

The average price for a domestic round-trip flight the week of Thanksgiving was $468 if it was booked in early November, with prices only increasing as the month went on, according to Kayak. That marks a 48% increase from 2021. And another headache: United Airlines expects the holiday will be its busiest period since the beginning of the pandemic.
