You take your gas when you have a plan for where to spend it.

okay, but i just lost to a terran doing a 2 base timing push against me with pure marine and i don't even think he had stim but as soon as i saw that he was going to be playing off of 2 bases i got my third down near the 5 or 4 minute mark and when i fully saturated all 3 of my bases' he came to attack me and that was when i was just starting to make lings'. and i just got 100 gas for MB. so i think i needed an earlier gas for banes. what do you think? :D

Yes. Banelings would have ended that game on the spot if you had them. Your third was a bit early too. ZvT thirds are generally a little later unless some insane metagame spawned an opener with a safe 4-5 minute third vs terran.

if you need to ask...do this.

against protoss take 2 gas at 6 minutes, and another 2 when those finish. first 100 gas lair, after that whatever u want, upgrades, ling speed, roach speed, roaches, stuff like that.

against zerg and terran, take 1 gas at 17 supply, then take your other 3 when u have optimal saturation on both mineral fields (16 drones= optimal saturation on 8 mineral patches). first 100 gas ling speed, then baneling nest. after that whatever u want...lair, banelings, upgrades, stuff like that.
