Small Oil Leak

I noticed today that I have a small oil leak. Not sure exactly where it's coming from other that around the tires in the middle of the car. Any idea's? I'm thinking the rear main but the car only has 48k miles. It seams a little premature.

Manual or automatic? The only thing close to the middle is the transmission output shaft seal and that would be tranny fluid. The rear main problem would be leaking out of the engine/bell housing area.

I have a 2005 Auto. Mine was coming from the Rear Main Seal. Had to get that replaced at only 41,000 miles. Oil was also leaking from the pan. The GM mechanic told me that the bolts were not torqued properly.
