Gas cap stuck- anybody else run into this?

Hi folks, I had the unique experience of coasting 1 mile into a gas station the other day because the gas cap wouldn\´t come off 25 miles before that. The key is turning, although it doesn\´t seem all the way. My suspicion is grit stuck in the mechanism. I\´ve sprayed WD-40 in the key hole but the surrounding portion is inaccessible. I\´ve also tried compressed air in the keyhole, banging the mechanism, attempted to twist the cap and key, and put downward pressure on the cap. Nothing. Remaining gas is draining, so I\´ve ruled out a vacuum. The next step I see is removing the tank and petcock then forcing air through the bottom of the tank to see if I can\´t dislodge any grit. I might also try to vacuum out the tank from the same petcock opening. Locksmith cites $150 for this, and my suspicion is they\´re going to end up breaking it open anyway. Anybody run into this problem before? Any ideas? Thanks a lot. -Richard
