Are all hydrocarbons nonpolar?

Not really, the example that Doctor Lavelle gave in class of dichloro-ethane. In this case, the cis-dichloroethane will be polar since the dipole moments do not cancel. However, in case of trans-dichloroethane- it is non-polar since the dipole moments cancel each other.
