GAS dripping from underneath

Last night on my way home, my 2000 F250 dsl was giving off a gas smell. When I pulled in the driveway, I immediately looked under my truck. It was leaking fuel by the oil pan area. It was night, so I couldn't see where it was coming from. Maybe a line/tube came off, eroded, ...hopefully is something minor.

Check the drain valve on the filter housing, it may have come partially open, or the orings in it could be shot.
