I already checked and that was not the problem unfortunately. I was hoping it was going to be a simple, stupid mistake I made, but I checked the filter, drain plug, and oil cap first, and they all seemed to be on tight.

I took everything back off and drained all of the oil out again. I am planning to get some brake cleaner and clean up underneath the car (covered in oil from around the oil pan on back), fill it up with oil, jack it up, and start it to see if I can see any leaks underneath. I won't have time to devote to it until this weekend though. Thanks for the input guys.
