Adhesive Tape Removal on Paint?

I got my car back last week from the body shop and when waxing it yesterday I noticed there was what looks like part of some adhesive tape stuck on both sides on the top of the car. Both left/right sides at the rear were repainted and I assume they applied tape to something that covered the areas that didn't get painted.

That tape is now stuck to my paint and without risking scratching the paint I need to remove it. Any suggestions I'd rather not go back to the body shop if it's something I can safely do myself.

I would take it back actually. I wouldn't risk ruining my new paint for something the body shop should have cleaned up. Then again it's been a week so maybe some goo gone is your best bet.

Thanks I'll try some "goo gone" I'd take it back but I really don't want to waste my time and the body shops time if I can remove it myself.
