Does Daisy love Gatsby or Tom?

Daisy seems unhappy with her marriage to Tom from the outset of the novel. Even the night before their wedding, she got drunk and told Jordan to tell everyone she had changed her mind. She tells Gatsby, “You always look so cool,” and everyone else can see that “[s]he had told him that she loved him.” However, Daisy chooses Tom in the end and even lets him tell George that it was Gatsby who killed Myrtle. Although Daisy may have loved Gatsby once, she does not love him more than the wealth, status, and freedom that she has with Tom.
