You can use the following in squid configuration to have access log for 
log time.

*logfile_rotate 10*

It will keep last 10 access log of squid. If you wish to have log for 
month, use it as 30. You may rotate squid log using crontab. Following 
will rotate log at every morning 6.

00      6       *       *       *      squid -k rotate
