Gas Door not closing all the way on 2000 Alero

Anyone have a problem with their gas door not closing all the way. I don't know if I can replace any parts or not. Door does not snap shut like it used to.

no it seems the gas door is missing a spring or something, it just does not shut like it used to. Sticks out about an inch more than usual.

may be the tab that catches the release is bent.

Or the catch is bent...
