Icon9 Gas leaking from under the truck?

I went to the store earlier today and noticed a strong gas odor in my Ranger as soon as I left the driveway. I then noticed the fuel gauge dropping pretty quickly so I pulled into the nearest gas station. I left the truck running for a minute and noticed a very heavy gas leak right under the driver's side door. It took me 4 gallons just to get home which is about 12 miles. Any idea what it could be? I'm gonna try to get the Ranger up on a pair of ramps later so I'll take some pics and post back as soon as I can.

If I remember right that's about where the filter is... I'd start there and see what you find!

It looks like I don't need the pictures after all. I started the truck up and crawled under the right side this time to get a better view of the leak and it appears to be coming from a tiny pin hole in the fuel line just right before the fuel filter. I called my local auto parts store and the guy told me that I would have to get the hose from a dealer. Is this true? Is there a certain name this piece of the hose goes by or do I need to replace the entire fuel line?
