2007 - any common causes of gas leaks?

2007 4 door JKU - Bought my jeep a couple weeks ago & have noticed a gas smell:

Doesn't put off a gas smell at first, but if you drive it for a couple miles & come to a stop it comes in through the vents (with the air on) pretty strong.

I've been looking but haven't found any dripping or gas residue.

Any ideas?

Gas evaporates pretty quick, so you might not see much dripping or residue, especially if the problem is in the upper portion of the tank or maybe a fuel line.

I have never heard of anybody smelling gas in their JKs and I've been around this forum regularly for quite a while. It's definitely not normal--something is wrong. I'd get it checked out immediately.
