It is important to note that, the oxidation state of oxygen in its compounds is -2, except for peroxides like H2O2, and Na2O2, in which the oxidation state for O is -1. However, since O2 is neutral it's oxidation state is 0.

Any element connected to itself (for example, O2, H2, F2, etc.) has an oxidation state of 0.
