The power of supply and demand works even in oil markets.  As demand goes up, this drives producers to create a greater supply.

Bonus comment:  this is further proof that oil production is best looked at as an economic problem instead of a geological problem.  Starting from the assumption of a known, fixed, and never-changing supply is the first problem with most “peak oil” hypotheses.
