I had same problem a month ago. I had the o-rings replaced on the fuel injectors... problem solved.
Are you sure it not an exhaust smell?

If you're positive it's gasoline, then check under the hood for leaks. They'll be more prevelant when it cold outside.

Look at the fuel injectors, then looks for leaks by tracing the fuel line. More than likely it's a simple o-ring on an injector, or a loose fitting on the fuel filter.

Definately get it checked! Dangerous.
