I don't believe so in this case! Earthquakes have been shown to occur more commonly around fracking sites in particular, but the seismic activity in the area is due to movement between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate. Parkfield is a little special though because where a normal earthquake causes a single large ground displacement, Parkfield experiences nearly continuous creep where the plates are always moving a little bit, rather than moving in discrete large increments.

They repaved 41 to Shandon a year or so ago, so creamy. But 41, west end of A town, still putzing with it still.
As to burgers @ Parkfield, check their website for hours open, I have been skunked twice.

Nice report and photos I LOVE that area, so many good roads, the climate, the scenery that area just does it for me. And I learned about a couple of roads I don't know: Cypress Mountain west from Klau Mine Road, gonna have to check those out next time. Edit: looking at those roads on a map, I really need to check those out, thanks ST Guy

To answer your oil / earthquake question: Ancient plate tectonic activity created the oil reserves in California and elsewhere and earthquakes happen with more frequency where the plates meet or rift zones. But the drilling for oil isn't causing earthquakes. Source: My dad, his wife and my brother in law are (retired) petroleum geologists, makes for some thrilling conversations during the holidays
