Combine sugar and oil in a large bowl. Beat in eggs and then add molasses into the mixture.
In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and salt.
Mix the wet and dry ingredients together and form into balls. Roll the balls in sugar.
Place the ginger balls on an ungreased baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake 10-12 minutes. Cookies should spring back when lightly touched. Remove to cool on wire racks.
