We know that unleaded is less than $3 dollars a gallon on average now. The Department of Energy is now saying it’ll stay that way for 2015. More on that. And a Hollywood trade publication Deadline.com was first to report that the toymaker Hasbro is in talks to buy DreamWorks Animation. More on the move to make movies out of toys. Plus, we take a look at a new book that shows how a currency crisis was pivotal to the history of George Washington, and to the United States as we know it.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
