The Asian markets are mostly green tonight, with the Nikkei up 0.2%.

From CNBC: Pre-Market Data and Bloomberg futures: the S&P futures are up slightly and DOW futures are up 15.

Oil prices are mostly moving sideways with WTI futures at $86.26 per barrel and Brent at $107.41 per barrel. Gasoline prices are now near the low for the year.

Here is a graph from Gasbuddy.com showing the roller coaster ride for gasoline prices. If you click on "show crude oil prices", the graph displays oil prices for WTI, not Brent; gasoline prices in most of the U.S. are impacted more by Brent prices.
