Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Tonight when trying to get gas we opened the door (cap less) and went to put the gas
spout in...there was metal covering the hole!
  Is there a switch or fuse we need to check?    Is this always closed and suppose to
open when the Door is opened?
  We had to leave with no gas...barely made it home.
