Is this source renewable or nonrenewable?
Petroleum, Nuclear energy and coal are all non-renewable because there is no cycle to reproduce coal, Nuclear energy and petroleum so we have no way of renewing these Fossil Fuels. What nonrenewable means is that there is no way to renew the energies we are focusing on.
How is electricity generated from this source?
Coal is generated by burning it and the steam is used to turn a turbine that is connected to a generator. Natural gas is generated by burning it and then used to boil water and the steam is used to turn a turbine that is connected to a generator. Oil is generated the same way as coal and natural gas.
Where is it being used and where could it be used?

Creates global warming, creates acid rain and can have some usage limits to different types of oil.
