When you first generate an oAuth access token via the API, you should also receive a refresh token in the response. This can be used to obtain a new access token when one has expired. You can read more about it in the Google API documentation. Google also provides a PHP library for authenticating with their services. This has support for the refresh token flow (see the code here).
