Look under the tub in the wheel well where the fuel intake goes to the tank. You probably have a loose/broken fill tube.

Sometimes, (especially if you have a locking gas cap) rat ba$tard thieves will cut it in an attempt to siphon gas.

Check the connections on all the lines going into the fuel tank. You may have to drop the tank to get to them all! Somewhere you are losing pressure in the tank.
