First thing that comes to mind is overcharging, causing a build up of pressure in the battery.

Did you get your oil changed by the "experts" at an oil change place lately? They could have messed with it.

I agree with the overcharging scenario. Check the alternator with the engine idling. It should put out about 14.2 volts with a fully charged battery.
