April 5 (Reuters) - Canadian stock futures inched lower on Tuesday as oil prices slipped to a one-month low, following a surprise fall in gasoline demand in the United States and scepticism over a potential deal to freeze output.

June futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.85 percent at 7:30 a.m. ET.

Trade balance, exports and imports data are due at 8:30 a.m. ET
