Fuel tank leak

I have a 2011 JK sport, well what's left of a sport at least. Stock motor with manual 6spd. I have developed a slight fuel leak. It does not spit while fueling. Started about 2 months ago with strong fuel smell after filling and parking in the garage. Smell went away in a few days, driving about 15 miles. Yesterday I could see that the front end of tank was wet with fuel after I filled and parked. There was not enough fuel to hit floor just wetted surface. Has anyone else had this issue? I can drop the tank if needed but it appears to be pressurization in the tank due to being filled and then parked as gas expands. Once I drive a bit no issue. Is there a vent on the forward top side of fuel tank? And yes I'm trying to save a bit of work before I commit to draining and dropping the fuel tank. Thanks for any info.
