A big takeaway from the International Energy Agency's big new oil market analysis is that despite the U.S. shale oil boom, weak overall global investment in new supply could bring high prices in just a few years. "We see significant risks of prices rising sharply, starting in 2020, unless significant new projects are sanctioned very soon," IEA executive director Fatih Birol said at one of the first events at the big CERAWeek energy conference in Houston.

Growth in oil demand is coming largely from Asia, putting the world demand on pace to pass 100 million barrels per day in 2019 and reach 104 million by 2022, IEA says in the five-year forecast. "We don't see a peak in oil demand any time soon," Birol said.

  • An eye-popping stat: "Today, one-third of the global oil demand growth comes from Asian trucks only," Birol said.

Between the lines: U.S. oil production is moving upward again, but the growth that IEA forecasts—1.4 million barrels of shale oil per day even if prices don't move above $60 per barrel—is not related to Donald Trump's deregulatory push. Instead it's the fruit of the industry's response to the price recovery. "This is not related to the current change in the policies," Birol said.

Trump says he wants 9 justices in case Supreme Court must decide 2020 election

President Trump told reporters at the White House on Wednesday that part of his urgency to quickly push through a replacement for the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is that he believes the Supreme Court may have to decide the result of the 2020 election.

Why it matters: Trump claimed at the Republican National Convention that the only way he will lose the election is if it is "rigged," and he has declined to say whether he would accept the results of November's election if he loses to Joe Biden.

A judge on Wednesday ordered Eric Trump to comply with a subpoena to testify before the presidential election in a New York probe into the Trump family business.

The state of play: New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) last month said her office had filed a lawsuit to compel the Trump Organization to comply with subpoenas related to an investigation into whether President Trump and his company improperly inflated the value of its assets on financial statements.
