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

Oil prices were up over the last week with WTI futures at $41.59 per barrel and Brent at $44.69 barrel.  A year ago, WTI was at $55, and Brent was at $61 - so WTI oil prices are down about 25% year-over-year.

Here is a graph from Gasbuddy.com for nationwide gasoline prices. Nationally prices are at $2.16 per gallon. A year ago prices were at $2.66 per gallon, so gasoline prices are down $0.50 per gallon year-over-year.
