You can use 'r' to search your history and execute a command. For example, if I type 'r v' from the command line, I'll open vi to the last file I worked with since the first command I run across that starts with v is vi.

You can also try set -o emacs
This will allow you to use up arrow to pull out last command, and you can also use Tab for autocomplete
