The CTA took a big bet on fuel prices this year, and so far is losing big.

The transit agency, facing a budget shortfall of $242 million, is paying $3.80 on average per gallon for diesel fuel -- 66 percent higher than the market rate of about $2.29.

Mary Wisniewski has details in the Chicago Sun-Times.
