Problems in the future of google streetview

I was thinking about the future of Google street view and I realized something. One of the really nice things about the street view is that the images are pretty recent. However that will change. They are spending a lot of money to capture all these images, but I doubt they will want to spend that again to recapture them in 2 years.

So: will Google street view decline in usefulness as the images age? Or will Google update them? Or will the old images still be just as useful?

I wonder if Google might keep track of construction projects and reimage area based on how much they have been changed.
