Don't try any chemicals. You risk cracking your taillights, I learned the hard way.
I wet sanded mine with 800 grit and moved up to 2000 grit. And then I used my DA polisher(you can do it by hand too) to work in Meguiars Ultimate Compound. Good as new.

Goo gone. Works amazingly. That's how Joey18 did it, he even did a video and it looked almost too easy.

I can co-sign goo gone. But make sure you have enough, you don't want to have to wipe it, then it gets bad.
