Expert Answer:

The Sun’s light energy helps plants to photosynthesise. The produced plant food is used for survival of all the plant and animal life. When the plant or animal dies, it rots and decays. This is then squashed under pressure from the sea or rocks. They can then be extracted to produce coal and oil.
So in short fossil fuels contain the sun's power stored up inside of dead and decayed organisms that have been pressurized, heated and buried. Oil, natural gas and coal are fuel sources created from this process that people use for their fueling needs.
