Sector Update: Energy

Energy stocks are down in noon trading, in tandem with modestly declining oil pries.

Light sweet crude oil for February delivery was off about 2% at just under $100 a barrel. Analysts attribute the correction, which follows six straight days of gains, to reduced concern over Iran's threat to curb oil production, coupled with weakening demand for commodities.

In energy ETFs, the United States Oil Fund ( USO ) was down 1.6%, at $38.43 while the United States Natural Gas Fund ( UNG ) was up 0.3%, at $6.85.
