Getting a trending line in graph.

I'm trying to get a trending average for a graph I created, but I used a (month/year) for a x axis and I'm having a hard time figuring out how.


The X is a Month/Year and the Y is a simple SUM for that month.



I believe it's a measure, but not quite sure how to get a running average to show say a trend (as the sum gets lower the average should be lower too).
