My gas tank is building pressure on my 81 gl1100. This is causing some drivanility issues and gas leaking from the petcock. If I relieve the pressure by opening the cap the problems go away. I think the cap is supposed to be vented and mine is plugged. Can somebody confirm this and maybe a remedy, I'd be most appreciative.

Yes, the cap is internally vented. If your's is plugged, you can either order another from Honda Direct Line Parts, or you can drill a small hole through the top (I did that when mine plugged on a road trip).
Don't spook the road sheep.
