I got the idea that it could be interesting to make a regular daily query to the route planning feature of Google Maps to collect statistics about commuting times. For example: ask Google Maps every day at 7:30 how long the drive from home to work will be. Then append the answer to a csv file and do the same thing on the next day again. Is there any way to do this, e.g. via an API? The easier the better, as I am only interested in the data (and automating the way to get it) rather than the way how to get the data.
