Gas Cap problem

Hello, I have a 2008 bmw 328i and I'm currently having issues with the Gas door. When I first bought the car the gas door was not locked, in order to open it I would have to push it in and then it would open, and to close it i would simply close it and it would close. Well I'm not sure how but now the gas door is not closing, it seems that its not locking into place. The only way to close it is by pushing it close and pressing the "Lock Car" button on the key, however as soon as I press the Unlock Button the gas door opens open again...

When I press the Lock Car button the pin the locks the gas door comes out, but when I press unlock it opens up. I'm sure this is normal, my question is how come the gas door no longer closes by itself?
