Volcanoes die when they move away from hotspots.

A hotspot refers to molten rock from a pocket in the mantle erupts towards the surface. An example of this is in the Hawaiian Islands. But while the continental plates move, the hotspot stays where it is. As the volcanic mountain or island moves with the plates, they’re cut off from the hotspot and die. The hotspot continues to erupt though and builds another mountain or island above it.
