It would be wise to get as much fresh air as possible during the next couple of hours. The most common symptoms of gasoline fume inhalation are dizziness, headache, bad taste in the mouth, shortness of breath and sore throat. These dissipate with fresh air exposure. If you have continuing difficulty breathing, see a Dr immediately.
