Description: "While all of our expenses are going up we have got to pay for more expensive gas. Our revenue from that gas is not increasing, it's still at seventeen cents a gallon. As long as we are funded this way and our revenue does not go up, we tend to get further and further behind in matching our expenses to the revenue we have."
If the gap between expenses and revenue continues to grow, Briggs says the department will have to cease new road projects.
