It sounds like the rubber hose between the gas cap pipe and the tank's inlet might have kinked or collapsed.BUT it gould be what Dennis said.
You should be able to look under the vehicle and see this hose. It's as large or larger in diameter as a radiator hose. don-ohio (:^)

There is a vent pipe that runs along the fill pipe, they get kinked and cause this concern (tank can't vent air when filling), the only fix is to replace the fill pipe assembly.

pull the nozzel out a little and don't squeeze the handle for full force.The more you squeeze the faster gas will flow the less you squeeze the slower the flow(to much flow)

The tank vent pipe may be blocked or kinked, it usually branches off the main tank filler pipe and can be seen from under the car.

Removing the fuel pump requires lowering the fuel tank from the vehicle, the fuel lines require special tools to remove the lines from the pump without damaging the lines( tool availiable at parts store) then remove the lock ring by turning counter clockwise , then the pump , is held to the bottom of the tank by a clip on each side of the pump once depressed the pump will come out.

Its not a gas issue. Its more than likely just coincidence that it doesnt start when you turn your car off to fill up.
Check the battery connections under your hood. If the posts (the positive and Negative leads) are corroded then you need to clean them so your cables have better connection to draw a spark for your ignition.
Clean the posts with a solution of 1 part baking soda, 1 part warm water. Use an old toothbrush to scrub the corrosion away. The solution will fizzle when you mix it with the corrosion, this is normal and fine. Just scrub it clean.
Once clean, tighten the connection with a socket wrench.
You may also be having battery issues. If its been a long time since a new battery or youve never replaced it, I would. Paying 70 bucks up front for a brand new battery is much better than getting stranded and a tow
. Autozone can help you with the battery replacement. Hope this helps. good luck.
