Gasoline Killed the Grass

I have a condo and the people that mow the grass used a big lawn mower that leaked a lot of gasoline last fall. I noticed the grass was turning brown and this spring the grass was dead. I've replanted grass seed numerous times and it will not come up. What should I do to get grass to grow in these spots?

Time would take care of the spots, although it would take a while. To take care of it yourself, you would need to dig up about 3 or 4 inches of the soil under each spill and dispose of it prior to repairing the grass at those spots.
