Intake Manifold Question

I had my intake manifold off this weekend because I had to fix a vacuum leak.

I noticed the inside of the intake manifold was quite wet and smelt of gas. The fluid looked more like oil, and I realize the gas smell might be coming from the injectors, but should the intake manifold be extremely wet on the inside? There were some spots that I could see inside the manifold where the fluid was actually pooling.

Any input would be nice,

Thanks guys.

Very common the oil is coming from the Valve cover breather and the PCV valve , the fuel smell is just from fumes floating around when you shut off the car , no fuel actualy goes through the intake
