Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

They are called " fossil fuels" because like fossils  of shells and plants  which are found in rocks ,they are old often hundreds of millions of years ago.                                                                                                                                Fossil fuels are part of the remains of living things which once flourished on the planet, but died and became buried under thick layers of younger rocks.
