I have been smelling gas for about a month but I don't see any leaks and it doesn't seem to be burning alot of gas do you have any idea what to might be

My car has 14800 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

It is possible that you have a leak in your exhaust system. Many times you will be able to smell gas when the exhaust system has a hole in it. The most common cause of this would be the exhaust gaskets or the muffler. I would recommend having these items inspected by a qualified professional to determine if the exhaust is the cause of your fuel odor.
