Default How to? I need to remove a crimped on hose clamp

Trying to remove a hose clamp off of my fuel line. I am working in wicked tight spot. How do you remove these crimped on hose clamps?
Hoping to read from someone that has taken these clamps off many times and in different spots. What is the pro trick?

and, thank you.....

Pair of wire cutters, and just cut it off. Then replace it with a small screw type hose clamp.

Hi Steve,
Seems simple enough. But because of where the clamp is, I can't get pliers on it. Bought some end cut pliers ( the only style in stock ) from Sears yesterday and the head is too wide for this spot. So I am off to VIP. But what I am gathering the main suggestion to remove these style of clamps is to cut them.
Definately putting a screw on clamp in place of the crimp clamp.
Thanks
