    I've had this problem before, take some WD 40 (or your brand of lube) & spray your key mechanism on the door, spray the shit out of your key & put in place for a few minutes then start wiggling the key & it should free up, then clean & spray the shit out of the lock mech..... you may need to do this a couple times....:D

    ^^^^ I agree. Also perhaps try a different key, your key may be getting worn and although it opens the door the gas door lock may be more sensitive
