I think that something is wrong with your logic. Higher oil prices mean more
drilling and more production. The good news is that there are many existing
fields that were marginally profitable because of low oil prices, but higher
prices should result in more production from these fields. I don't know if
this is enough to make a difference in the demand for new sources, however.
Higher prices mean that PV, wind and oil producers are all in a better
position to produce more product.
