From CNBC: Pre-Market Data and Bloomberg futures: S&P futures and DOW futures are down slightly (fair value).

Oil prices were up over the last week with WTI futures at $48.68 per barrel and Brent at $51.74 per barrel.  A year ago, WTI was at $40, and Brent was at $40 - so oil prices are up about 25% year-over-year.

Here is a graph from Gasbuddy.com for nationwide gasoline prices. Nationally prices are at $2.29 per gallon - a year ago prices were at $2.00 per gallon - so gasoline prices are up about 30 cents a gallon year-over-year.
