Speedo Quit Working - 96 Chev. 4x4

This has happened twice in about a week. The first time was getting lunch at work. I was headed to Wendy's and noticed my speedo wasn't working. When I got back to th eshop, I checked the fuses and found the fuse for the cruise control was almost out so I pushed it back in and the speedo started working. The second time was this morning. I left my house and noticed it wasn't working again so I thought "loose fuse" again but my cruise was still working. I don't know if the cruise and the speedo are on the same fuse but it fixed it the first time. I pulled into a gas station and checked the fuse, all was good this time but still no speedo. I drive about 60 miles to work each day and after about 20 miles, the speedo started working again. It seems to be an intermittent problem and need to know where to start looking. Is there a speed sensor that could be going out?
Thanks

S10 Racer,

Are you getting a "Check Engine" light?

Funny you should ask this. I bought the truck with 166,000 miles on it and it has almost 311,000 now and the check engine light has been on ever since I've owned it. I did read the codes a month or so ago and it said "cyl. 7 misfire". I did notice though that when the speedo quit this last time, the check engine light was off and even when the speedo started working again, the check engine light stayed off. I am probably going to assume the light itself has finally burned out since it's been on so long.
