Major vacume in fuel tank causing fuel to spill out

What would cause the fuel tank to have sever vacume? If I drive it for a mile or so and twist the fuel cap you can hear the tank sucking air and alot of stuff poping as it goes back to regular shape.

Kinda like a coke bottle when the air is taken out and it pops back into place.
