The national average price for a gallon of diesel continued its decline for the week ending Monday, Sept. 11. Truckers paid $2.857 per gallon, 11 cents less than the previous week, the U.S. Department of Energy reported. The price was roughly 1 cent more than the same week last year — a modest increase compared to recent weeks where the year-over-year difference hovered at 70 cents.

All U.S. regions enjoyed decreases from the previous week. The Midwest led the pack with a roughly 15-cent drop to $2.787 per gallon, while Gulf Coast drivers are paying $2.770. Not every region is seeing drops below $3; the West Coast saw the slightest decrease, a .062-cent drop from last week to $3.313 per gallon. Rocky Mountain region drivers are paying the most in the United States — $3.236 per gallon.
