Question about Hyundai Motor 2002 Elantra
The fill tube for the fuel tank is either clogged with something or the anti-siphon feature (what stops people from stealing your gas) is fouled up. The tank and fill tube have to be inspected.

get the filler hose checked out as it may have a spring inside it to hold its shape or something has been dropped inside restricting it!

Stop and talk to a dealer to see if they have a TSB on this problem,
Dodge had this problem and they corrected it by installing new tanks.

Its a fact the pump will kick off on some makes especially trucks. here is a hint. When filling up insert the nozzle fully and then pull it back one inch. This way it will not stop or splash back at you which some pumps do

I had a similar problem with my 1999 S80. Give this a try. You don't need any mechanical experience. At no point will you come into contact with any gasoline. This is a five minute fix if it's what I think it is.
Background: when you gas up your car, it goes down a tube to the gas tank. There is a vent on that tube to let off gas fume pressure that can build up in the tank. If the vent gets clogged pressure builds up in the tank. Modern gas pumps shut off when that pressure comes back up the tube from the tank. I think if you clean out the vent with a Q-tip you'll solve your problem. At least, it worked for me.
(fig. 1 - a vent for the tube that leads to your gas tank)
I suppose it's possible that when you open the blockage some gas fumes will vent out, so don't be smoking while you do this :) Now that I've said this, to be super-duper safe why not do this outside away from any chance of open flame.
