In brief: Maybe
The average person passes gas 10-14 times per day.
..Maybe your are just lucky or the most popular person on an elevator. The only time you need to be worried is if there is pain or obstruction. If you are concerned, get your pcp to check it out. Very rarely is this a concerning symptom.
