From CNBC: Pre-Market Data and Bloomberg futures: S&P 500 are down 10 and DOW futures are down 92 (fair value).

Oil prices were up over the last week with WTI futures at $51.91 per barrel and Brent at $60.87 per barrel.  A year ago, WTI was at $64, and Brent was at $70 - so oil prices are down about 20% year-over-year.

Here is a graph from Gasbuddy.com for nationwide gasoline prices. Nationally prices are at $2.24 per gallon. A year ago prices were at $2.52 per gallon, so gasoline prices are down 28 cents per gallon year-over-year.
