Yes, gasoline starts to go bad when it is about 1 month old.

After 6 months you should not burn it in an engine unless you have

put a fuel stabilizer in it. In that case it will be usable for

about 8 months. This is also important with small gasoline engines

on lawnmowers for example. Bad or old gasoline can damage a small

engine very easily.
