You need to replace the entire section of line from end to end from/to the nearest fittings. It is unwise and unsafe to do this any other way. In replacing, you can use several sections of new line, joined by pressure couplers (solid, not kind with ferrules) in order to attain the proper length. Keep measurements as close as possible so there is not a lot of "leftover" at either end. It's not necessary to exactly follow old routing providing your install does not rub on anything or interfere with linkages etc. (don't forget engine and trans move as does suspension.

you most likely have a brake line rusted threw, cut the line ahead of the leak and after the leak and splice in a new piece of brake line, it will have to be steel, you can not use rubber. if you take the line to a parts store they can size it up and get you a piece of steel line and some pressure fittings to put it back together, after you repair the line then you will need to bleed the rear brakes.

If it's a rusty brake line that's leaking you'd best replace the whole brake line system (all 4 wheels) for your safety. Fuel lines have the same problem. These are made out of steel and rust fast due
to calcium chloride used on the roads in winter.
Unless you're familiar with routing and installing connectors on these lines I suggest you let a pro do the job. It ain't as easy as it looks.

When I turn the car on tons of Gas pours out all over the ground. As far as I can see there is no hole in the gas tank. Everyone keeps telling me its the rubber hose. I need to know the likely hood of that...

It depends on where on the car it is leaking. For sure if it only leaks with the car on it is leaking from a gas line. There are rubber lines connecting the steel lines to the tankand they can go bad. The steel lines run up one side of the frame, usually the driver's side. They can also corrode and leak.
If you are quite sure the leak is on top of the tank then it has to come off. There are 2 straps holding it on and the bolts should be at the bumper end. Don't be surprised if they break off, they can be replaced.You will also have to unbolt the fill neck at the top because it will come down with the tank. Leave the cap on. You should block the tank up before you start and have a hydraulic jack so that once the straps are off you can slowly lower the tank with it. Make sure you have a piece of wood between the jack and the tank so you don't poke a hole in the tank. Gas as a liquid is not combustable but the vapors are so as long as you don't smoke or create a spark you should have nothing to worry about. That's why you use the wood blocks.
When you can see your problem you can get rubber gas lines by the foot and hose clamps at the autoparts store. If the steel lines are bad then steel brake line is an acceptable substitute and can be bought by length or by the foot. Hope this helps.

Rear Brake Line

Sounds like it is time to replace your brake lines, the steel ones under the car. You can usually go to any parts store and see if they do the loan a tool program and get a brake line flaring tool, remove the old line first to see if it is a bubble flare still on there or if someone has changed it to double flare. Then rebuild a new line and bleed the brakes. Definitely don't recommend driving it. The transmission lines may be in the same condition, those can be ordered from the dealership or a local Napa. The trans line on that should have a nut on the line to put a wrench on and remove it. Try something called PBlaster- works great for rusty fittings.
