Oil prices were mixed over the last week with WTI futures at $62.16 per barrel and Brent at $66.02 per barrel.  A year ago, WTI was at $48, and Brent was at $51 - 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 $2.29 per gallon - so gasoline prices are up 25 cents per gallon year-over-year.
