If you are hoping to get a definitive answer on whether or not to use the Oxford comma, prepare to be disappointed by this video.

Its usage seems to depend on context, preference, or history of use. The only rule seems to be: If you start using it in a piece of writing, keep using it. Be consistent. 

I like the Oxford comma. It appeals to the anal-retentive person in me.

I have been using it since I learnt that was what it was called. If you are crazy enough to do a content analysis of my blog, you might figure out when I made the switch.
