I think the best way to approach any one of these problems is to first identify what your system is. In this case, the air inside is the system so you must look to see what is being done to it or by it. If the gas's volume expanded it pushes the piston and thus it is the one doing work. On the other hand, if the piston moves it down, the piston is doing work to the gas within.
