LEAKING OIL

I noticed last night when I pulled into my parking space that I had left a trail of oil. So this morning I went out to look and see if there was a puddle under neath my car and sure enough there was. I just want to know if my car is still drivable and what actions I should take?

I wouldn't drive it until you identify where the leak is coming from and if there is enough oil in the engine to safely run the engine. Check the drainplug and oil filter making sure they are tight and not leaking. If they are, try to tighten them. Also, did you just have the oil changed?
