    Petroleum and natural gas are the result of prehistoric biological mirco-organisms which fell to the bottom of the sea and became trapped underneath layers of sediment. Under geothermal conditions called 'subduction' which involves incredible pressures and temperatures for thousands of years, the organisms are 'pressure cooked' if you will; they become broken down into basic hydrocarbon chains ranging from the simplest, methane, all the way up to multiple ringed aromatics (phenol-based, low API gravity crudes). To answer your question, I guess, you could group this into fuel resources.
