Default Need help 2008 Pt cruiser.

Hi guys,im having an issue with my 08 Pt Cruiser,engine light came on and the code it gaved me was P0456 ,i was checking and it said that it was either gas cap not tight enough or evap canister small leak..i inspected the gas cap and didnt notice any gas leaks so i suspect it could be the evap canister,next month im planing to buy a new car and my question is...can i hold this issue until next month?what could happen if i dont get this fix in a month/2 months time frame?..thanks for the help guys.

interestingly, if you clear the code, it will not come back unless you do this:

EVAP Drive Cycles

The following are sample drive cycles for the EVAP monitor:

Chrysler: There are two-parts to this test. The first part runs after idling for five minutes, then driving at 30 to 45 mph for two minutes (fuel tank must be half to 85 percent full). The second part runs after the vehicle has sit for 8 or more hours (cold soak) without being driven. Start the engine and idle for four minutes, then drive in stop-and-go traffic for five minutes using smooth accelerations and decelerations. Stop and idle for 4 minutes. The EVAP monitor should be complete.
