You have a gasoline leak. Unless you want this car to catch fire and burn up, have this looked into by a professional. Do not park this vehicle in a garage until you get it fixed. Your house may burn down if the vehicle catches fire.

Why would the car smell like gas and the trunk smell like gas?

More than likely because its leaking. If the gas smell is stronger in the trunk then that normally indicates that there is a leak in a fuel line around or on top of the tank...usually it is on top of the tank because dirt/salt ect can build up on the tank and the lines corrode... If the smell is stronger inside the car then it could indicate a leak in the fuel line from the engine compartment to the center point of the car... None the less if you are smelling gas then there is a leak somewhere in the system and you should have it checked before it catches fire and burns up...
