Schedule for Week of Dec 3, 2017

From CNBC: Pre-Market Data and Bloomberg futures: S&P 500 are up 18, and DOW futures are up 218 (fair value).

Oil prices were down slightly over the last week with WTI futures at $58.16 per barrel and Brent at $63.53 per barrel.  A year ago, WTI was at $52, and Brent was at $52 - so oil prices are up solidly year-over-year.

Here is a graph from Gasbuddy.com for nationwide gasoline prices. Nationally prices are at $2.46 per gallon. A year ago prices were at $2.18 per gallon - so gasoline prices are up 28 cents per gallon year-over-year.
