Common places for 3.8 to leak oil

I've gotten tired of worrying about my mustang leaking oil, so when it warms up around here I'd like to see what I can do to fix my leak. My mustang needs a quart of oil around every 1500-2000 miles (I run 5w30 syn-blend and oil changed every 5,000 mi). I was wondering if anyone could point out a few gaskets likely to be leaking oil. I know this won't be exact since nobody can see my engine, but it'll give me somewhere to start looking. I also plan on degreasing my engine and looking for where the oil is leaking.

Oil pan gasket, valve cover gaskets. Check those first.
