The sister of a friend of mine had a similar thing occur and discovered that the little flap for the gas tank had fallen off or was not closing properly. It's that metal little thing that pushes aside when you insert the nozzle for the gas.

Why would your 2007 Ford Fusion have a clicking noise and it wont start unless it is jumped?

I am no mechanic, however this is a 2 part fix. First the battery is shot, so replacing this is one part. The next is a little more complicated. You should take your vehicle to autozone or somwhere similar and get the alternator checked out. It sounds like this may need replacing as well. Like I said start with the battery, as this is the cheapest, but get the alternator checked out as well, or you would just waste the money on blowing another battery if the alternator is the problem. Best of luck!
