Help, big leak

I rolled up to the gas station this morning, and all of a sudden some type of fluid started pouring out from under my belt and hpop, I have no idea what it is, Its not oil or fuel, I have a feeling it's power steering fluid, I put gas in her, and drove over across the bridge no problem, idk what the heck it could be.

Check and make sure the cap is still on the Power Steering Pump Reservoir and also make sure that the high pressure line has not popped out of the pump (they like to do that). Cheers!
