First of all, what smells like gas to one person doesn't always smell like gas to another, nor does it even mean it's gas to the person it smells like gas to. Many people pull into a shop saying they smell gas that actually turns out being a coolant leak, A/C leak or even mildew built up in the system.
So I can't really guess at to what is causing the smell you are smelling. But I do know anytime there's ANY possible chance of gas or exhaust fumes leaking into your car, you should STOP driving it immediately. Not only can this cause a fire/explosion, but these fumes can kill you without you even knowing you're dieing.
My advice to you would be to have the car inspected. Then make the determination on if you want to fix or sell.
