Several possibilities; leaking oil pan gasket, leaking oil pan drain plug seal or washer, leaking engine front seal. Clean the area thoroughly from all traces of grease, dirt and oil - then add a small amount of oil-soluable dye to the engine oil - and drive like normal - to be able to spot the exact source of the leak.
Check on-line for the many parts supply sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts.
