From CNBC: Pre-Market Data and Bloomberg futures: S&P 500 are up 6, and DOW futures are up 100 (fair value).

Oil prices were up over the last week with WTI futures at $62.23 per barrel and Brent at $65.72 per barrel.  A year ago, WTI was at $48, and Brent was at $50 - so oil prices are up solidly year-over-year.

Here is a graph from Gasbuddy.com for nationwide gasoline prices. Nationally prices are at $2.52 per gallon. A year ago prices were at $2.30 per gallon - so gasoline prices are up 22 cents per gallon year-over-year.
