RAPID CITY – Sales tax revenue figures indicate business is booming in Rapid City and communities across the Black Hills.

The Rapid City Journal reports that Rapid City saw a $7 million increase in collections from 2010 to 2012, and the cities of Deadwood, Sturgis and Spearfish also have seen steady climbs.

Officials cite several local factors, including a healthy housing market, strong tourism spending and new industries. Some also credit the oil boom in western North Dakota. In Belle Fourche (foosh), where a lot of oil workers live and commute, sales tax collections jumped nearly 9 percent from 2011 to 2012.
