Most typically this is caused by cold temperatures as experienced with my 1996. The easiest way to solve this is to have a friend use fingers to {gently) pry open the door while you are lifting up fully on the inside release lever. Normally it will heal itself again when warmer weather returns as it is caused by a frozen release cable in the track, or even a frozen latch on the fuel door itself.

I've had a problem with this on my 92 Achieva S almost since Day 1. The spring opener on the door broke or froze up. So now I just pry it open with a screwdriver or key whenever I fill up.
