(CNN) – Gas prices are near their lowest levels of the decade right now. And it seems like every time there is a huge spike, or plunge, in the price of gas, people have to find some bigger reason behind it.
Because oil equals power.
So what are the masters of the universe up to?

(CNN) – The high stakes midterm elections are just five days away, and the 2016 race for White House will begin just hours after next Tuesday's ballots are cast.

CNN's Jake Tapper reports.
(CNN) - Negotiations over where a Maine nurse can be allowed to go have failed, Gov. Paul LePage said Thursday, and he's going to "exercise the full extent of his authority" to keep Kaci Hickox away from public places.
The state is now saying it doesn't want to confine Hickox, who recently returned to the United States after treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone with the organization Doctors Without Borders.
They want the nurse - who has twice tested negative for Ebola and says she feels healthy - to avoid public places such as stores for 21 days. That's the deadly virus' incubation period. Much of that period in her case is already up; it is set to end the second week in November.
(CNN) – Fort Kent town manager Donald Guimond agrees that nurse Kaci Hickox has a right to leave her home, but he echoed the governor's statements that people in the community are worried.
"Folks in our community are concerned about this situation," Guimond said.
Hickox worked in West Africa, the Ebola hot zone, and is now fueling a fierce debate over competing american principles of liberty and security. She is defying orders to remain inside her home in Fort Kent, Maine.
