Its the gaskets going bad at the top of your spark plug tube. Not to bad of a job just do it during your next oil change :)

EDIT:
couple things
Dont take out your plugs til its done and all the oil is out.
Its probably a good Idea to replace your wires too. (looks like you are doing that already :))

Wow, as common as this problem is I wouldn't think a new thread would pop up weekly.

This job is a cinch though. Like Scooby said Check out that thread for an idea on how to do it, then tackle it. And 1stsubaruparts.com is a great place to get the bits to fix it cheap, it comes out to about $50 for the 2 main gaskets, 4 spark plug gastkets, and 10 or 12 or the little gasket washers.
