  • In New Jersey, Restoring Electricity A Top Concern
    Many people who evacuated safely ahead of the monster storm Sandy are returning to their New Jersey homes to find devastation. Others still have homes, but they're unlivable because there's no electricity.
  • Gas Shortages Add To Frustration In Storm-Hit Areas
    Motorists in the storm-slammed area of New York and New Jersey are having a hard time finding gasoline. Some stations have no gas left; others have gas, but no power to pump it.
  • Some Economists Think Price Gouging Is Good
    Many states have laws against price gouging. People hate it when businesses jack up prices during an emergency or a time of severe shortages. But economists say that preventing price gouging often makes matters worse.
  • In Tight Race, Black Voters Urged To Turn Out
    With days left in the election, the Obama campaign is reaching out to voters who, theoretically, should need no convincing: African-Americans. The president won more than 90 percent of the black vote in 2008. But he wants to make sure black voters turn out in this tight contest.
  • Romney's Baffling Claim About Medicare Pay Cuts For Doctors
    The Obama administration's health law envisions reductions in some Medicare spending. And some of the money saved on Medicare will help pay for other parts of the law. But those changes are unconnected with doctors in some areas not being willing to accept Medicare patients.
  • N.Y., N.J. Scramble To Ensure Voting Is Possible
    Superstorm Sandy is interfering with planning for Election Day in New York and New Jersey. Though neither of the reliably Democratic states is expected to decide the presidential election, authorities are trying to find ways for millions of voters to cast ballots.
  • New York Marathon Scheduled To Go On
    Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced Thursday that the New York City Marathon will go on Sunday, as planned. That decision has sparked some criticism.
  • Romney Back On The Attack In Virginia
    Mitt Romney dialed up the criticism of Barack Obama at campaign events across Virginia on Thursday. For most of this week, Romney held back from criticizing his opponent as Superstorm Sandy raged.
  • Obama Makes Final Push For Second Term
    President Obama is making his final bid for a second term, telling audiences in Ohio that Mitt Romney wouldn't create good change, only bad.
  • Chrysler Hit Sales Milestone In October
    Chrysler is again in the news — not for political reasons, but because the Detroit automaker is selling cars. A lot of them. The automaker had it best October sales in five years.
