Something (dirt) in the needle and seat or the float level needs to be lowered. Needle and seat can just be screwed out of the top of the fuel bowl and inspected, then re-installed, and then reset the float level. Fuel should just barely trickle out of the sight plug on the side of the fuel bowl at idle when set correct.

You are REALLY killing power with that peewee air cleaner you have on there, it isn't even big enough for a lawn mower engine.

Just get a basic holley rebuild kit for that carb wich should be only about 30 bucks or so and you should have your gas problem gone after you does as others suggested check your float level and clean the carb up. It could not hurt it.
