Power steering hose(pressure hose)

For the last couple of days I have been noticing little oil spots in my driveway and my parking spot at work. Today my power steering began whining. After work I stopped by autozone and picked up some ATF. I stopped by my parents house and had my father turn the wheel while I looked for this apparent leak. I found that the pressure hose was the culprit. It's the one that routes itself by the exhaust mani. My question to any of you guys is, where is the place to go and this hose in a timely manner? I need get this hose and fix it asap. I drive the car, round trip, a little over 60mi a day and I don't want to damage the PS pump. I looked at the DIY's and I feel fully confident that I can tackle the job in no time. I would like to order it from somewhere tomorrow morning and have it next day, if at all possible. Thanks in advance guys
