The rubber has been partially dissolved by the gasoline and it has fused to the spout of the pump.
Ideally you should just cut the line to pieces and completely replace it. But if you can't do that you will have to dislodge it: use a fine, long screwdriver with a flathead to break the seal all along the circumference of the spout. Be very careful when you stick it there, it will slip sideways very easily, piercing the line.

1. Look at the top of the fuel pump and look for any connections between the fuel lines and the fuel pump. Look for a hose clamp around the connection. If you find one, proceed to Step 2. If you find a weird-looking clip, proceed to Step 3.
2. Remove the hose clamp on the fuel line using the flat-head screwdriver. Pull the fuel line back off of the fuel pump to separate it.
3. Look for a pinch point on the clip, as most of these fuel pump connections are quick-connect styles. Some have two white tabs that pinch in, others have tabs on the inside, which you can see through access holes in the line. Pinch the white tabs if you have those, while pulling the line off of the fuel pump. Otherwise, use the flat-head screwdriver to push in the tabs on the fuel line through the access holes, then pull the line off of the pump.
I hope this helps.........
