Our gas cap door won't latch. Looking on the inner right wall of the gas cap niche, there is a hole. It looks like maybe a threaded piece fits in it. Whatever is the latches male part is missing. What is it?

The solenoid plunger is probably stuck in. That is a somewhat common problem; happened to my car. I took the cover off on that side and sprayed the solenoid with silicone oil; no issues since.

easy fix

Do a search and you will find easy to repair procedures. Sometimes spring is corroded and cheap replacement from hardware store is neccesary.
