Remember Cauthen's $2.50/gallon Gas?

While pumping gas recently at $3.75 or so a gallon, I happened to recall that a few short months ago, Wayne Cauthen submitted a budget assuming gas would be available for $2.50 a gallon. Even at the time he submitted the budget, you couldn't find it for under $2.80.

I hope the City Council people who gave Cauthen a cushy 3 year contract are ashamed of themselves. Rumor has it that several of them are admitting they made a huge mistake.

They did.

Would you say it's a bigger mistake than planning for a 25 year transit system when the law only allows you to fund it for 15 years?
