2000 chev prizm loses oil @1 quart per week. No signs of leakage or burning. I do drive @125 miles per day to and from work. Any ideas of what could be happening?

Wow, 125 miles!

If there are no apparent leaks, then it is burning it, you may not be able to see it.

Have a compression test performed to test rings, otherwise could be valve stem seals need to be replaced.
Do you notice any blue smoke on initial startup in morning for a few seconds? This would indicate valve stem seals.
