Sounds as if the leak is at the filter, if it is a pipe fitting it just may need tightening up, you may need a new filter at around $25. Depending on what brand, if the fule leak is from a damaged fuel pipe, this will have to be priced by your mechanic, best get a mechanic to check tis ASAP as this is a serious problem that need attention urgently as a fire hazzard is very real.
