Amos, I think I posted at the same time you were posting your question. That dinosaurs had anything to do with oil deposits is nonsense, of course.
The immense volume of microfloras and faunas make them the main source, supplemented by degrading plant material (not as rich a source of protohydrocarbons, however). Every other living thing buried in the sediments is minimal in its contribution.
