If you can smell gas in your oil that is a bad thing. If you take off your oil cap and look at the inside of the cap if you see a greyish milky whitish color than you more than likely are on your way to a fully blown head gasket. When the head gasket seal starts going it leaks gas into the motor causing it to mix with your oil. After a short period of time your oil/gas mixture will cause and overload in friction inside the motor and this will "blow" out at the weakest point that being your already damaged head gasket.
