Default 2017 sxt fuel door froze shut!

Hello all, my wife is the proud owner of a 2017 sxt Charger awd. Well we live in NY state, we get freezing weather. This morning the fuel door appeared froze shut, the release actuator WAS operating ( well it could be heard!) And it took numerous attempts of light taps with a closed fist to pop it open. It does not have a gas cap so to say, the door actually seals to the filler neck, I think when closed. Any one else ever have this happen?

Put some silicone lube around where the two pieces seal together. Should fix it.
