Petroleum is a non-renewable recource. It is mainly found at the bottom of the ocean or under the ground when its underground it gets trapped in pockets such as where rocks are folded into an umbrella shape. This produces energy for cars or really any machinery. But it is not the same as gasoline! Petroleum is used mostly, by volume, for producing fuel oil and petrol, both important "primary energy" sources. There are many uses for this recource such as cars, machines, factories, and more. Every gasoline company uses this in the gas you probably heard of the "BP oil spill" BP is a popular gas company. Oil is getting more expensive every day because it is a non-renewable resource.
