Check the adjustment of the bearing cones - and lubricate according to the mafg's specs.

Sounds like the bearings could use to be pulled out cleaned and the hubs races cleaned as well. Hubs on a bicycle require grease not oil, and DO NOT use automotive grease! Any LBS should have some type of waterproof grease suitable for this job. The key is to get the hub comnes properly adjusted so that they are not to tight or too loose. More info can be found here:
