Oil market prices rose 1% on Friday after news came out that there seemed to be disagreement between OPEC leaders in Vienna on how whether output should be raised to compensate for tightness in the market, per Reuters.

The big picture: A decision hasn't been formally announced yet, but market analysts expect OPEC to announce 500,000 to 600,000 barrel per day production increase to keep the market moving without overloading the market.

The state of play: Benchmark Brent Crude prices went up 1.54% to $73.92 as of 7:30am ET Friday. WTI Crude jumped 1.24% at the same time.

The backdrop: Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih pushed for a 1 million barrel per day hike on Thursday during a monitoring committee meeting. Iran's oil minister Bijan Zanganeh stormed out but eventually returned to the negotiating table, per Bloomberg.

The most notable part of Thursday’s presidential debate on climate change was the fact it was included as a topic and assumed as a fact.

The big picture: This is the first time in U.S. presidential history that climate change was a featured issue at a debate. It signals how the problem has become part of the fabric of our society. More extreme weather, like the wildfires ravaging Colorado, is pushing the topic to the front-burner.

Finally, a real debate

A more disciplined President Trump held back from the rowdy interruptions at tonight's debate in Nashville, while making some assertions so outlandish that Joe Biden chuckled and even closed his eyes. A Trump campaign adviser told Axios: "He finally listened." 

The result: A real debate.

Biden to Trump: "I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life"

Former VP Joe Biden pushed back Thursday against allegations from President Trump, saying he had never profited from foreign sources. "Nothing was unethical," Biden told debate moderator Kristen Welker about his son Hunter's work in Ukraine while he was vice president.

Why it matters: Earlier on Thursday, Hunter Biden's former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, released a statement saying Joe Biden's claims that he never discussed overseas business dealings with his son were "false."
