tar -zxvf data.tar.gz

-z : Uncompress the resulting archive with gzip command.
-x : Extract to disk from the archive.
-v : Produce verbose output i.e. show progress and file names while extracting files.
-f data.tar.gz : Read the archive from the specified file called data.tar.gz.

is the file just gzipped?

gzip -d mydata.doc.gz

Need to create a tarball that is gz zip compressed?

tar -zcvf archive_name.tar.gz directory_to_compress

tar it in tmp directory of files/folders in current folder:
tar -zcvf /tmp/archive_name.tar.gz  .
