It should go off by itself in a few days.

Chris is probably correct but if the CEL starts flashing. stop driving immediately. Another thing you can do is check the filler cap gasket and coupling. You might need a new one.

I would not worry about it; the light will go off automoatically after 500 miles of driving. If it annoys you that much, just go to a parts store and have them hook it up to an OBD-II tester and they can erase it for you as long as it is an EVAP Emissions control code related to your gas cap not venting properly.
