Rising oil prices have a positive impact on the price of energy stocks. This is especially true for producers and transport companies that bring supply downstream to the refineries. The higher the price of oil, the more the reserves are worth on an exploration and production firm's balance sheet. And the higher the price of crude, the more fees midstream companies can collect for the transportation and storage of crude oil.
