Are there any places in the ocean that are leaking oil all the time?

    Not any naturally occurring places, no.  There have been some rumors floating around that the Deepwater Horizon spill created fissures in the ocean floor around the Gulf of Mexico that have been consistently leaking trace amounts since the accident, but BP vehemently denies these claims.

    The other answer is incorrect in saying there are no natural oil seeps. There are many many places around the world (hundreds if not thousands) where oil seeps into the ocean continuously and naturally. There is even an oil seep in the Great Salt Lake. The question has been asked and answered several times recently; two of the answer pages are linked below.
