After feverish oil activity in 2008, taxable sales and purchases in North Dakota fell to more normal levels last year. However, Minot's taxable sales and purchases continue to grow at record pace - up 7.8% from 2008, according to the North Dakota Tax Department. Minot Mayor Curt Zimbelman said economic growth has been good, and the figures underscore Minot as a regional service center for the part of the state that is doing very well.
