Slow Drain on Battery

Hi All,

I dont drive my car too often (live/work downtown) sometimes maybe once a week, sometimes less. About a month ago I replaced my battery. It was tested and they said it was gone, but weren't specific.

I bought a new battery and everything was fine as long as I drove it once a week.

I went to go start it tonight and the battery doesn't have enough to crank the engine, but has enough to work the radio and interior lights.

Very similar to what happened before I replaced my old battery.

My old battery wouldn't even start the car with jumper cables hooked up to another car.

I've checked all the interior/trunk lights to make sure nothing has been left on, but have found nothing.

Has anyone experienced this? Could it be the alternator?
