Use a tool like that from autozone. They have little tools that slide in and push out the clamps so the fuel lines can pop right off. This video is for a very different type of fuel line on a very different car but the concept is the same.

so are these lines under any sort of pressure? also, will gas run out of the them uncontrolably? I wouldnt think so because the pump is not running but this is my first time dealing with the fuel lines.

Some gas thats already sitting in the fuel line might run out. However, it won't be a constant spraying where you'll be screaming Jesus Christ and trying to hold it like a garden hose. LOL

The image just popped into my head. LOL Just make sure the car is off and is cold.

Make sure the keys are out of the ignition so the fuel pump doesn't try to prime itself also remove the gas cap to release some of the pressure.

I have had to do many many fuel filters at jiffy lube, at the end of some days i could wring out my uniform into a cup and fill my gas tank. lol

Fuel filters on the bottom rear passenger side. I had this changed already. Its a $10 part, but I definitely suggest doing it, since mine was extra gunked up.

[edit]
by yourself with the right tools, this is a 15 minute job
