It appears that the hose to the carbon canister is either disconnected or has a hole in it. It won't hurt your car to drive it this way. If you are really concerned about it, replace the carbon canister and the connecting hose and forget about it for another 15 years or so.

SOURCE: P0442-Evaporator emission control system leak(small

The purge solenoid is by the engine and is connected to the vacuum system. Check the vacuum lines going to this and the lines that may be connected to the vacuum port it comes from. Check for seals on the solenoid if it is directly in the intake manifold. Other things to check are the lines (plastic) that go to the charcoal canister and fuel tank. If the light has been on for a while I would start with the pugre solenoid. If you have a vacuum leak there it would go from small to gross.
Small leaks are checked by the ECM constantly, gross leaks are some that has broke/cracked.

Look at the gas tank filler cap. Make sure the seal in the cap is good. If it is cracked it may be leaking air into the system. Simply replacing the cap usually fixes this problem

SOURCE: How do I fix my 2006 Toyota Tundra SR5 4.6L V8 Double Cab - Innova Can OBD 2 - Code # P0455 Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (gross leak/no flow)

Looks like you've got 1 of 2 scenarios. 1. A vacuum leak on the lines running to/from your charcoal canister. This sucks up any gas vapors and stops them from leaking into the atmosphere, hence the smell of gas when near a vehicle that isn't running, much like a rotting/rotted gas tank, fuel lines or a gas cap on older cars. Gas consumption will increase until this is fixed properly. Usually just a crack in a vacuum line, a broken plastic connector, or the charcoal canister has gone bad. 2. It could be due to an over-fill issue at the gas pump, causing excess gas to trip a sensor in the fuel filler tube area. A typically known and problematic issue dealers try to charge up to $1600 to "repair" as it doesn't actually ix the problem permanently. If scenario 2 is the issue then it's a manufacturing defect in the design of the fuel system that cannot be permanently or properly fixed easily. Just watch the pump and make sure it doesn't overfill the tank. If it does, then just use an OBD scanner and clear the code. It will stop coming up one the overfill fuel sensor has started to dry-up. Good luck.

At least the cap isn't loose for the gas tank.

I would clear the code with an OBD-II Scanner 'erase code' button, and see how long it takes for it to come back.
