Within the limits of the standard nxt kit sensors you could use a light sensor to detect the gas (if it is visible). Perhaps mount the sensor in a dark box with the led active, a reduction in light levels detected by the sensor signals the detection of the gas.

For other gasses you might need to cannibalise other electronics. For example I dont think it would be impossible to buy an off the shelf carbon monoxide detector and connect it to you nxt in such a way that it signals the nxt when it detects gas.
