Although that is low mileage, it is still normal. I go 6k on my oil changes and do not use a quart.
The reason is most likely piston rings and it is burning the oil.
If you are using synthetic oil and changing it at 3,000, that is a waste of money. Synthetic oil changes are much longer intervals for protection.
Go to standard oil if you change it at 3,000.
