NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Marathon Oil Corp.  (MRO - Get Report) stock is down by 4.35% to $7.48 in mid-afternoon trading on Tuesday, as oil prices retreat and affect energy stocks. 

Oil prices are declining after an International Energy Agency report said that crude oil prices are likely to continue dropping due to the global oversupply of oil, the Wall Street Journal reports. 

Additionally, the Energy Information Administration lowered its 2016 demand forecast by 110,000 barrels per day on Tuesday, which also pressured prices, according to Reuters.

"The IEA report was a bearish blow, followed by the EIA report which sings from the same hymn sheet," Matt Smith, director of commodity research at ClipperData, told Reuters

Crude oil (WTI) is down by 4.38% to $28.39 per barrel and Brent oil is falling by 6.48% to $30.75 per barrel, according to the CNBC.com index.

Based in Houston, Marathon is an energy exploration and production company.
