Energy, strong dollar drag Wall St lower

NEW YORK, March 13 (Reuters) – U.S. stocks slumped on

extending its losses throughout the morning, after the
International Energy Agency said a global glut continued to
build and U.S. oil production showed no signs of slowing. The
commodity has fallen in six of the past seven sessions and is
down almost 60 percent from a June peak.
