This could be as simple as being out of fuel. This is why I'd check this first:

When an engine is about to stall, the oil light may flicker on and off or stay on due to the engine not running fast enough to supply sufficient oil to the case for sensor detection.

Since this opens up a whole world of possibilities ranging from simply being out of fuel to a faulty in-tank pump not supplying fuel to the EFI, I'd advise you to have the car taken in for a professional diagnostic.

Furthermore, since this very well could also be an internal engine issue (i.e. bad oil pump that's caused poor compression over time due to excessive wear of the rings and cylinder walls), I'd not attempt to run it until a diagnostic can be done. Better safe than broke.
