Hi, the battery can be replaced by Apple for a fee if you think it's no longer holding its charge, perhaps if it's more than 18 months old. Your other alternatives are:
- an external battery, just search for 'iphone external battery', there are a number of products that will charge your phone on the move.
- Disable all cell/ wireless when you don't need it by putting the iPhone into 'Airplane' mode, this considerably reduces the battery drain but obviously you can't make or receive calls.

You say you're using an iPhone 3G, this means it's two or three years old. The battery is almost certainly at the end of its useful life, and will need replacing, for a fee, or you could take the opportunity to upgrade to a shiny new iPhone 4.
The battery should retain 80% charge over 400 recharge cycles. If you've been charging it every day for 3 years, that's been over 1000 cycles.
