Gas fumes, bad for health?

I was trying to return a lemon lawnmower and apparently the cap wasn't tight for the gas and so some seeped out.

Now my car and my garage smell like gasoline and it's kinda giving me a headache due to the extreme smell.

I've tried to clean it but the smell still permeates the air and stuff, is this smell/fume going to be harmful or just wait for a few days before it goes away?

Air it out and you will forget all about it in a few days. People work at gas stations everywhere every day, people pump gas every day, it's all around us. Coming in physical contact with it isn't good for your skin, and breathing concentrated fumes isn't either, but breathing the trace vapors from a dried spill won't hurt you in the slightest.

It's not exactly good for you, but it's not a big deal. It'll evaporate in a couple days. Open the garage and set up a fan if it's bothering you.

Shell stations have signs on the pumps telling you not to breath the fumes because even light exposure has been linked with high incidences of cancer

The quote on the warning sticker from the near-by gas station: "Prolonged exposure to vapors has caused cancer in laboratory animals." A little more than light exposure, but sitting in a car with spilled gasoline probably crosses that threshold.

It's is a bit harmful. Just leave all the windows open and the smell will eventually go away.

I think as my opinion People work at gas stations everywhere every day, people pump gas every day, it's all around us. Coming in physical contact with it isn't good for your skin, and breathing concentrated fumes isn't either, but breathing the trace vapours from a dried spill won't hurt you in the slightest.

EVERYTHING has been shown to give you cancer in cali - it's a wonder they had enough money to spend on all those studies to prove all that stuff

Short term minor exposure to gasoline fumes shouldn't do much (if any) harm to you, and the gas should also break down naturally in a very short amount of time and the fumes will go away.

If somehow ingested... we could be talking a different story.
