If this car is a front wheel drive then its most likely leaking from the oil pressure sending unit. Some signs that this is the problem area include but are not limited to:

-Excessive oil consumption but very little or even no oil puddle under the car.
-Burning oil smell most often noticed after coming to a stop.
-While coming to a stop the oil light on the instrument cluster flashes and or lights up briefly.

Depending on your engine the oil pressure sending unit will be located:
-2.5L and 3.0L V6 engine the unit is located on the oil filter housing which is in the front of the engine. (I think)
-2.0L, 2.4L and 2.7L V6 it will be at the left end on the rear side of the block. You may have to remove a heat shield to gain access.
If this is where its leaking then replace the unit with a new one.
Hope this helps :)
