1997 D90 - the engine has simply shutoff on a few occasions - more frequently while parking and going in and out of reverse. On less frequent occasions, after running the vehicle, turning off and then attempting to turn back on the engine doesn't sound as strong and then goes out. typically will need to wait 5-10 min and then restart.

Additionally, I have noticed that there is a smell of gasoline and found a slight drip at the bend of the elbow of fuel hose. picture attached

that is your filler hose, it should not have running issues because of that hose, but because of the leak being a safety concern the hose should be replaced.
for your running issue you should diagnose if it is due to lack of fuel or lack of spark, I suggest you replace the fuel filter as a starting base, continue to diagnose.

IACV (Idle Air Control Valve / Stepper Motor) is common problem on 97 where it stalls out when idle or low rpm like you describe. Cheap and very easy to replace, search for it here and you'll find lots of threads on details.
