I'd say it rhymes more with gas.

Rhymes with 'farce', 'arse' and 'overpass'

that's interesting, does 'overpass' ever get said like that in England? I can't imagine it.

I've read that different regions of Australia have quite different patterns of what rhymes with 'gas' and what rhymes with 'arse'. It's not as similar to any one region of England as people might assume.

I can't speak for England, but here in Australia I've only ever heard 'overpass' rhyme with 'arse'.

Glass all the way. I keep trying to rhyme it with arse and I feel like an idiot when I say glarse.

Both actually. I have a parent from Lancashire and was raised in the South of England, so my dialect is quite inconsistent with some words.

It rhymes with gas for me.

Don't you mean, "Gas all the way."?

Gas, I can't imagine saying it another way.

If it rhymes with farce, it can't rhyme with ass you moron. As other people have said, it rhymes with arse, but ass rhymes with gas.
