It might be a long shot, but i have a 04 cavalier and i once smelled gas and had a putter issue. Turns out the fuel pressure regulator basically sits on the fuel rail with one screw on the side. Over time, the regulator either goes bad or becomes unseated off the fuel rail. In my case, both occurred. Went to O'reillys, bought a 48 bux fuel pressure regulator and replaced it. After that., no more gas smell and no more putter.
You could also have a bad idle air control but this would not cause the smell of fuel to occur, unless this bad valve is causing your pc to spit out an excess of fuel which is being unused or somthing.
