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.
