How do fossil fuels form?

Fossils are the remains of creatures that lived long ago. So, fossils include organic matter buried beneath layers of rocks. A fuel is a source of energy.The effects of pressure and temperature can change organic matter into fossil fuels. Coal forms from dead plants that sink to the bottoms of swamps. The organic matter is buried under sediments and slowly transformed into peat. If the peat is buried under more sediment, it can become coal.
