    Crude oil is made up of a complex mixture of hydrocarbons and impurities such as oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, and metals.  It has a flashpoint (the temperature at which it will vaporize and become ignitable) less than 100 degrees F.  This makes it highly flammable.  It is easily ignited by heat, sparks, or flame and its vapors may form explosive mixtures with air.
