When oil leaks into the ocean why does the oil float to the surface?

Oil and water don't "mix" together in the normal sense, and oil is less dense than sea water. That makes the oil float because the water, which is more dense, pushes it (the oil) to the surface.Archimedes' Principle- a body immersed in a fluid experiences a buoyant force equal to the weight of the fluid it displaces. Therefor if one were to weigh a given amount of oil and the same amount of water, water would weigh more. Three stages of buoyancy are positive(floats) negitive(sinks) neutral(doesn't float or sink).
