Default Oil leak while parked

My 89 Accord SE-I (a20a3 engine) is leaking oil while parked in the driveway
overnight. Will a bad oil pan gasket or rear main seal cause that? Is the
oil level high enough to leak while just sitting there?
Thanks,
Forrest

My plug leaked after about 45 oil changes (200K).
Techs can be a little sloppy.
I used pizza pans for a couple years then.

Yes.

Find a slightly different place to park it (further back in the
driveway, for instance. Or your neighbor's driveway, if it's
spotless).

Park the car cold overnight. Oil? Look at the drain plug first
(please, Lord) and then the mail (no, Lord). No oil? Look at the pan
gasket.

The RMS Titanic sank on April 15th. US income taxes
are due on April 15th. Coincidence? I think not.

Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President and died on April 15th. The 16th
amendment to the constitution was for income tax ...... coincidence?
Freeing the slaves was the 13th ..... bad luck?
