RSS Feed for commodity data

Is there a commodity futures/options price RSS feed?

I want to automate some trade decisions (commodity futures/options) as much as possible so I'm looking for two things:

1) One or more RSS feeds of end-of-day futures/options prices. If I have to sift through numerous daily updates to get the end-of-day data I can live with that. If I have to handle feeds from different markets, also OK.

2) Historical price data that I can load into my own database. This used to be sold on CD years ago but where should I go these days?

Free is nice but I understand I may have to pay.

Best answer: Probably, RSS is not a good search query. A google for 'commodity price XML feed' comes up with this site, and this site with published WSDL. I can't recommend any particular ones though, as I've never used any of em.

You could start out by talking to the exchanges, about getting historical price data. CME definitely sells their tick data directly. There are almost certainly other sources, but I would start with the exchanges.
