I have mixed feelings with cable lube, to me it mostly depends on cable type, if I am running stainless cables I do not lube them unless I will be in very corrosive conditions like lots of salty slush. If I am running galvanized cables I always lube them to help keep corrosion away.
For lube, my favorite is a cable specific lube from Shimano but the tub is very pricy, my next favorite is called Cable Magic by Rock N Roll, much cheaper and neither one seems to gum up over time.
