It will go away in less then 30 miles. You can unplug your battery for a couple of seconds and it should reset, but you will lose all of your radio stations and the time will have to set again lol.
I had to replace my gas cap completely because the light came on. I tried an Autozone cap and the issue came back a couple weeks later because it would not seal correctly.
I bought an OEM cap and you can feel it seals and the problem was solved, no more issues.
