It's either burning or leaking out. Try topping up the oil, driving it and checking the oil level every 100 miles, see if it's dropping. Then once you've verified it is dropping, take it to another mechanic, because the oil is going somewhere.

I have also been having this problem and have taken it to several mechanics. No one can figure out where the oil is going. My car has 192,000 miles.
