Do you get the gas smell all the time or just while car is running?

You could be getting gas smell from anywhere on the fuel system. I would start under the hood with the car running and just look for any wetness on fuel lines and fuel rail. Then check under the vehicle. From the year of your car my guess would be that you have a rusty fuel tank. I would pay close attention to tank and lines coming from tank.
