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 $40.58 per barrel and Brent at $43.09 barrel.  A year ago, WTI was at $55, and Brent was at $61 - so WTI oil prices are down about 30% year-over-year.

Here is a graph from Gasbuddy.com for nationwide gasoline prices. Nationally prices are at $2.18 per gallon. A year ago prices were at $2.77 per gallon, so gasoline prices are down $0.59 per gallon year-over-year.
