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

Oil prices were up slightly over the last week with WTI futures at $56.18 per barrel and Brent at $65.81 per barrel.  A year ago, WTI was at $62, and Brent was at $65 - so WTI oil prices are down about 10% year-over-year, and Brent is unchanged.

Here is a graph from Gasbuddy.com for nationwide gasoline prices. Nationally prices are at $2.48 per gallon. A year ago prices were at $2.52 per gallon, so gasoline prices are down 4 cents per gallon year-over-year.
