Fuel shortages, power outages hamper Sandy recovery

• http://www.reuters.com, By Edward Krudy

At least 76 people in North America died in superstorm Sandy, which rampaged through the U.S. Northeast on Monday night, and officials said the count could still rise as rescuers searched house-to-house through coastal towns.

  After a three-day hiatus, President Barack Obama was to return to the campaign trail, boosted in his re-election bid by a resounding endorsement of his leadership from the Republican governor of New Jersey. 

The Democratic incumbent, tied in polls with Mitt Romney ahead of Tuesday's election, begins a two-day trip to the swing states of Colorado, Ohio and Nevada while his Republican challenger travels to Virginia.

  Obama viewed flooded and sand-swept neighborhoods of New Jersey on a helicopter tour of the state with Republican Governor Chris Christie on Wednesday. 

"The entire country's been watching. Everyone knows how hard Jersey has been hit," Obama told residents at an evacuation shelter in the town of Brigantine.
