Oil prices were down over the last week with WTI futures at $30.93 per barrel and Brent at $34.09 per barrel.  A year ago, WTI was at $50, and Brent was at $55 - so prices are down about 40% year-over-year.

Here is a graph from Gasbuddy.com for nationwide gasoline prices. Nationally prices are at $1.74 per gallon (down over $0.40 per gallon from a year ago).
