Benzene is nonpolar since all the dipole moments cancel out.

Benzene is nonpolar. Search up the shape and you'll see the symmetrical structure.

In general, all hydrocarbons are nonpolar.

Benzene is non polar, as it is a hydrocarbon only containing c-c and c-h bonds, and hydrocarbons are generally non polar. The c-h bond, though, is slightly polar, as c is more electronegative than h, giving it a small dipole moment.
