No, gas problems would have generated failures all over the screen, not in distinct lines.
No, these lines are caused by badly functioning buffer boards: the chips on it that directly control those specific lines of pixels overheat and start to malfunction. The problem is getting worse because the status of the chips is getting worse: they need less and less time before starting to fail. In the end it will fail for good and those lines will be permanently on the screen.
The faulty buffer board will have to be replaced. You should call a repairman to do it - to access them the entire tv must be completely dismantled and this is a very tricky operation in a plasma tv. On top of that the replacement board is very hard to obtain by a regular person, it will have to be ordered at the dealer. Fortunately it's not an expensive part - less than $40 per piece.
