Fuel lines by the engine on GM cars are usually plastic and use quick connects. The fuel rail that houses the injectors is steel. The leak could be a failed O-ring or a cracked line. Do not delay this repair for obvious reasons. I would have this gas leak inspected and repaired as soon as possible to get you safely back on the road.
