Smells like oil?

Just had the oil changed but now it smells REALLY hit when I drive it.. It's not overheating and I don't really see any oil on the ground but it smells like the car is on fire. When I open the hood I can see smoke/steam but I can't tell where it's coming from. Something just feels off when I'm driving it too.. Not sure really how to describe it but something's different..

Think it could just be some oil they spilled burning off or?..

05 GT 50,xxx miles. I bought it with. 28,xxx on it.

That's what it sounds like. Some spillage. Just run it and keep checking the oil level. You should be fine.

That's what I was Hoping it was. I'll just keep a close eye on it. How long should it take to burn off?
