Pump prices still rising as refineries cut back on production
Oil prices slid closer to a new multiyear low today because of growing doubts that the $789 billion stimulus package will reinvigorate the economy and demand for energy.

Unleaded gas prices this morning in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks were around $2 a gallon.
