It's highly doubtful any engine will provide actual numbers for this information, but Google Trends does provide enough to get a feel for a term's recent performance. Whether that's useful will obviously depend upon how precise you really want this information to be.

+1 - Also worth mentioning: the Adwords tool offers Global and Local approximations which are particularly useful, as the results generated by the tool can be exported in a variety of formats for tracking over time. – danlefree Sep 13 '11 at 14:19

And here's another tool: Google Insights for Search
it helps you to compare search volume patterns across specific regions, categories, time frames and properties.
