How can I determine why docker isn't running on CentOS?

I'm running CentOS and installed Docker using their convenience script. Docker isn't starting though, it isn't available to me and says "inactive (dead)". How can I find out what the cause of this is?

$ service docker status
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl status docker.service
‚óŹ docker.service - Docker Application Container Engine
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: inactive (dead)
$ docker ps
Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?
