Serial Comma: To Use Or Not To Use

Serial comma, aka Oxford comma, aka Harvard comma.

It seems that one either loves it or hates it. No happy medium here.

Whatever you choose to do-use the comma or not-do it consistently.

The Chicago Manual of Style – feel free to use the serial comma.

AP Stylebook – proceed with caution (use the serial comma only if a sentence is confusing without it).
