Americans aren't feeling very optimistic about the country ahead of President Biden's State of the Union address next week. That's according to a new Gallup survey that shows a majority of Americans only have a positive view on two things: the overall quality of life and the opportunity for a person to get ahead by working hard. This, as there was a six point decline when it came to how satisfied people were about the way income and wealth are distributed in the U.S.       Texas is seeing flight delays and power outages as winter weather continues to hit the state. Dallas-Fort Worth International, Dallas Love Field, and Austin-Bergstrom are all dealing with numerous flight delays and cancelations. Meanwhile, more than 400-thousand Texans are without power due to the winter storm that has hit the Lone Star State.       Gas prices are down a penny from yesterday. Triple-A puts today's nationwide average at three-49 a gallon. Prices at the pump are highest in Hawaii, at four-93.       A suspected school shooter in Texas is still being declared incompetent to stand trial. A judge will sign an order to keep the suspect in the hospital for up to another year. The defendant is accused of killing eight classmates and two teachers and wounding several others at Santa Fe High School in 2018.       Anti-corruption raids are being carried out in Ukraine as it prepares for European Union leaders to visit. The raids occurred Wednesday right after Ukrainian President Zelensky said he would soon make more personnel changes in his government after a series of official dismissals last month. Meanwhile, intense fighting continues in the east of the country.       Dr. Pepper fans have a new flavor to try. The brand recently debuted Dr Pepper Strawberries & Cream. It comes in regular and zero sugar and will also join the brand's permanent beverage lineup.
