Default Oil Leak

I have a leak coming from near around the oil filter. (its all gunked up underneath the engine I have to buy degresser to clean all this crap off making it harder to work underthere) anyways, I thought it might have been from jiffy lube not tightening it enough. We I tighnened it a little bit last night and I thought I fixed it so I went to wal mart and then home about 10 min drive max, checked it one more time when I got home, and it was leaking again. Its a good leak. It leaks about a drop every 5 secs. Checked the oil level yesterday too and it was still in the safe range.

Anyone know what might be leaking? Its brownish like oil so thats what I thought it was. I already think Im going to have to redo the whole oil change, maybe they didnt lube the O-ring but I hope its not that. Oh and my oil sensor wires are covered in oil. And my power steering isnt leaking anymore fixed that. So I think its near my filter. Sorry for the long read.
