How do you store Sriracha?

We keep our sriracha in the pantry at room temperature with the cap closed. The bottle leaks some kind of oil from around the cap and oozes down the side of the bottle. Every bottle we've ever had has done this. Has anyone else had the same experience? Any idea why this happens or how to avoid it?
