The average price for a gallon of on-highway diesel is on the decline for the second week in a row after a drop last week ended a six-week streak of rising prices.

The U.S.’ average price for a gallon of diesel is now $2.884, which is $1.008 lower than the same week in 2014.

Prices decreased in all regions across the country during the week. The most significant decrease came in the West Coast less California region, where prices dropped 5.4 cents, followed by California, where prices dropped 3.2 cents.

The cheapest diesel in the nation is in the Midwest at $2.774 per gallon, followed by the Gulf Coast region at $2.783.
