Here in Michigan, buying a "cord of wood" means face cord as defined in other posts and usually goes for around $55 or so, depending on dry time and species ("mixed" hardwood is the most common) and delivery. Why isn't it sold in FULL cords? Well, a lot of the wood is sold to people w/ fireplaces in suburban homes. They use it mostly on weekends and a face cord is all most will need for a full winter.That brings up the storage issue. A face cord will stack neatly against an outside wall of a surburban house whereas a FULL cord would take up a lot more space on a suburban or city sized lot. Plus paying $100+ more for something you won't need until next year.

In Michigan the legal definition of a cord of wood is 128 cubic feet. There is legally no such thing as a "face cord". Technically/legally wood needs to be sold by the cord or fraction of a cord or by weight.
In the UP here a cord of wood is generally a loggers cord of 8' long logs stacked on a truck. Scaled and sold the same way a cord of pulpwood is sold to the paper mill.
