BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- Taxable sales and purchases in North Dakota during July, August and September grew 2.4 percent compared to the third quarter of last year, to more than $6.9 billion. 

Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger says North Dakota's wholesale and retail trade sectors were strong performers in the third quarter.

Thirteen of 15 industries reported growth during the third quarter of 2013.

Two sectors reported a slowdown: mining and oil extraction. Rauschenberger says those sectors had experienced explosive growth in recent quarters some of which was related to the construction of pipelines and other one-time expenditures.
