My droid has experienced the "oil slick" effect for the last couple of months, and has also had tremendously bad battery life (have to recharge several times a day). If I take the battery cover off the spot goes away. I realized the battery is just shot and has swelled, a new battery should fix the problem completely. A separate issue may occur if too much pressure it put on the phone. I once gripped the screen by the bottom to pull it out of the dock charger and squeezed too hard which caused a brighter area to appear, mostly only noticeable with a white background and it's still pretty faint, but I don't believe anything can be done to fix this. Just FYI for anyone else having these problems.
