Question 1994 6cyl. Isuzu Rodeo fuel filter replacement?

Happy Holidays friends, I am replacing the fuel filter on the Rodeo. I was told there is a way to relieve the pressure before changing filter and think I'd like some help.
Thank you for your time,
I've gotten sage advice for home repair that saved me $, time and frustration, plus it felt great to do it myself and have high hopes for this project

Remove your gas cap.

No pressure?

I was told by the guy at the parts counter that there was pressure on the hose leading to the filter and I remember something about a way to release the pressure in the system.
Really? it's a simple as taking off the gas cap?
That would be cool

Remove the fuel pump's fuse, start it up and let it run 'till it stalled, turn key off, remove gas cap and you are ready, wear your safety goggle just in case, it's may have little pressure left in the line so, before you pull the hose out, wrap a shop rag over the hose and the filter, then pull the hose out. When you done, install the fuse back and check for leak, keep your safety goggle on 'till the job is done just for precaution.
