From CNBC: Pre-Market Data and Bloomberg futures: S&P 500 are down 3, and DOW futures are down 23 (fair value).

Oil prices were down over the last week with WTI futures at $56.55 per barrel and Brent at $62.54 per barrel.  A year ago, WTI was at $46, and Brent was at $46 - so oil prices are up solidly year-over-year.

Here is a graph from Gasbuddy.com for nationwide gasoline prices. Nationally prices are at $2.54 per gallon. A year ago prices were at $2.15 per gallon - so gasoline prices are up 39 cents per gallon year-over-year.
