depends where the oil came from.of it has leaked down from a valve cover gasket,that is not hard to fix.if it a leaking valve seal that is expensive and if the head gasket is leaking,expensive.look at the outside edge of the valve cover,and check the edge for oil.if there is alot of oil,by the time the plug is unscrewed oil can go inside.the oil would burn off,so if there is oil inside it is dripping down probably from a valve seal.take off the valve cover and inspect the seals they are probably no good.there are 2 seal sets,one is in the valve cover,and that results in oil on the outside of the plug,and the actual valve seal which results in oil in the inside of the engine.

I would replace the spark plug cable as well. It is quite easy the damage old plug wires when removing them to change the spark plugs. A good way to check this is to pull off a spark plug wire (one at a time), then start your car. If it became worse then move to the next wire until you find one that is causing the miss. Make sure you shut the vehicle off before touching the wires. Then switch it out with one of the other wires. Make sure you change it at the coil as well. Now recheck for the miss. If it moved then it's the wire. If not the you might need to recheck that plug gap and also inspect the inside of the distributor cap. You may need to replace that as well.
Plugs, Wires, Cap and Rotor should really all be replaced at the same time.
