Higher vega, or volatility, increases the price of an option.  Option buyers want to get into an option when the volatilty is low. 

Rho is the least used component of option price.  Rising interest rates will increase the value of a call option while decreasing the price of a put option.  Decreasing the interest rates will have the opposite effect.
