Fuel cap release

Can't find the release button to open the door to the gas cap. Just got her and it's been 26
years since I've been near one. I know its simple and i am going to look foolish but she needs gas bad. Thank you

Its a cable with or without a handle on it under the far right side of the bottom of the dash on the passenger side of the cab under the glovebox.
