Oil leak from oil filter area

I have a 2004 jeep liberty with the 3.7L engine. After changing the oil it continues to leak from the oil filter area. I thought it was a bad seal on the filter so I changed the filter again. It is still doing it. This has been going on for about a month now. I know after doing the filter change you get a few drops for about a day that drips down on that metal piece in front of the axle, but is continues to drip there.

Check the oil pressure sensor right above the oil filter.Use only a OEM sensor bought from the dealership,it's worth the extra $$$.

I would also check to make sure a gasket from an old filter is not stuck on the oil filter adapter.
