A little help...paint question

Well like a dumass I used some "goof off" to help remove the little warning sticker on the tank below the gas cap trim. It did NOT want to just peel off. I had to rub and pick away with my fingernail. When I was done, I noticed the area was kind of faded. Apparently I took some of the clearcoat off. If you rub some oil on it, the faded area vanishes....so it looks like the paint is ok. How do I fix this? Can a paint shop just touch up an area or would the whole tank have to be redone?

well the home wax/buff job didn't do the trick. You can still see it. Looks like I'm gonna have to shell out a few bucks for my mistake :(
Yes i did...i bought some compound paste at a paint supply and hand buffed it back to a shine. I used some quality polish to finish with. Took some elbow grease but worked very nicely....thanks for all the tips. Dont use goof-off.....if I had read the directions on the bottle it says not to use on automotive paint
