Essentially it’s because of heat and pressure. Over millions of years tiny dead plant and animals from the sea got buried under many layers of dirt and rock. The pressure from these layers transform the tiny organisms bodies into the fossil fuels we use today. That is why fossil fuels, like oil, are not renewable resources, because they take millions of years to form.
Petroleum is created from ancient biomass, that has fossilized into a flammable crude oil liquid. This is distilled into gasoline and various other fuels. Generally, it is created from algae and other sea life such as plankton that has died and been pressurized into a thick sludgy mass that is crude oil.
