I don't know about the smell of gas, but we had the same problem. the first time it happened, (I don't mean it happened once - it happened repeatedly) a bottle of fuel injector cleaner solved it,
The next time it happened ( a couple years later) I was stranded at the first red light when I got into the city. The car would stall each time i put it in drive. It would idle fine i neutral & park, but stall in and other gear. A guy stopped to help me - he was from a reputable transmission chain. he said the problem was with ? ?? in the transmission ( I can't remember exactly 0 it was about years ago) he fiddled with a switch that locked up in behind the drivers side front tire. he couldn't get it unlocked, so the car was towed to his transmission shop. They repaired the problem and I have not had this issue since!

I had a distributor module go bad in a 1983 Pontiac V6. One dealer could not fix it, and second dealer diagnosed and fixed it in 30 minutes after I had it towed to him. It would start up and run for about 70 seconds and then quit. Restart everytime. Same thing. Part of the circuit has a startup mode like a cold choke, then the main mode switches in. My main mode was burned out.

Check your air filter. It may be ok, however you may need to clean out the air intake with Throttle Body Cleaner. Do not use the Carb and Choke Cleaner. If not this, it could be the fuel pump or filter. Start with the cheapest first
