NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Denbury Resources (DNR) were down in late-afternoon trading on Monday as oil prices declined.

Crude oil (WTI) was slumping 1.17% to $46.43 per barrel and Brent crude was decreasing 1.68% to $48.43 per barrel this afternoon.

Oil prices were pressured by a rallying dollar today. Commodities denominated in dollars are more expensive to foreign currency holders when the greenback is strong.

Additionally, glut concerns increased amid forecasts for growing U.S. crude stockpiles and Iran's comment that it was set to hit peak output, Reuters reports.

"Today is just another economic story that's fed the dollar's strength and with the weekly build expected in U.S. crude, prices are getting a double whammy," Tariq Zahir, a trader at Tyche Capital Advisors, told Reuters.
