Found little pin in my Gas tank...WHAT?

I was getting gas tonight and I found a tiny little pin next to my gas tank. It's on the left side, (side of the gas-crevice frame) it's just a tiny black thing that was sticking out and i couldn't close the tank until I just pushed it in. I have no idea what it is or if it's supposed to be there.

any idea?

that pin is to lock ur gas tank cover

i would guess that you hit the lock button on the key after you opened the gas door...
It's the deadbolt for the gas door. When you lock your car, the deadbolt pin comes out.
