Could have simply been the cold!
Moisture can freeze which makes it stick shut too? That is what happened to me.
Solution: leave fuel pump find nearby Cafe or seller of hot drinks and ask for a cup of boiling/hot water with your chosen beverage.
Now carefully pour boiling/hot water directly over fuel flap soonest...sorted!
If you are a way off from fuel station - free it up and leave open....
May seem obvious, but if its really cold (as it has been) the water you sploshed over it will re-freeze on the way to the fuelling up!
