From CNBC: Pre-Market Data and Bloomberg futures: S&P 500 are up 9 and DOW futures are up 78 (fair value).

Oil prices were down over the last week with WTI futures at $53.60 per barrel and Brent at $59.14 barrel.  A year ago, WTI was at $69, and Brent was at $80 - so oil prices are down about 25% year-over-year.

Here is a graph from Gasbuddy.com for nationwide gasoline prices. Nationally prices are at $2.64 per gallon. A year ago prices were at $2.84 per gallon, so gasoline prices are down 20 cents year-over-year.
