A single quart of oil spilled on the ground can seep in and pollute 250,000 gallons of drinking water. Pouring oil down a storm sewer is the same as pouring it directly into a stream or river. The time it takes to properly dispose of old oil and gasoline is small compared to the time and effort to clean up a spill.

EarthWorks has good ideas on where, how and why to carefully dispose  of used oils and gasoline.
