Willing to pu money on it being your position rings going bad which lets oil slip buy to enter the chamber which gass and air mix and the spark plug lights now for bad news only way to fix is to rebuild now while the car will still run it will lose even more power time

Was the oil on the outside of the plugs, or on the of the part that screws into the engine "the electrode"? If it was on the outside of the plug, you might have leaking valve cover gaskets.
