Mary Marlowe Leverette, About.com Laundry & Laundry Rooms, says:

Can you vent a gas dryer to the attic? Yes. SHOULD you vent a gas dryer to the attic? NO! Neither a gas nor electric clothes dryer should be vented to an indoor space because of the moisture they exhaust can cause the growth of mold and mildew. Read more about installing and venting a gas dryer here. Learn about selecting the correct dryer vent "hose" or piping here.

If venting a dryer properly is difficult or impossible, consider a ventless dryer.

Good luck!
