I noticed that when I park my Express Van after driving it, I can smell gas. Almost smells like I just left the gas station. There are no visible leaks. I.E. The concrete is never wet What could be wrong. Obviously, I'm assuming there is a gas leak somewhere, but where are the most likely places and what is approximate cost to get this fixed?

We don't get involved with costs here because there's way too many variables. We don't even know what's wrong. Probably the more common places to look are for staining on the sides of the gas tank, indicating rust holes on top, if it's a steel tank, and shrunk o-rings on the injectors. For those, you should be able see some seepage from them right after the engine is stopped.
