    Slump / Slumping

    Oil prices are falling due to low demands, excessive production and western sanctions over Russia.

    Can I use "slumping" instead of "falling"?

    Slumped. Do you not have access to a dictionary?

    Re: Slump / Slumping

    You can find out the various tense forms of any verb using a good dictionary or an online facility. There are hundreds of them!

    Additionally, remember to put a space after a comma and to put a question mark at the end of a question.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
