sounds like the lock is jammed pb blaster might loosen the tumblers other wise u may need a lock pick kit and something strong to turn the lock ... a lock smith would probably be your best bet ... u sure u have the right key???

Is there a key stuck in the gas cap lock now? Or is the lock just stuck and the broken key removed?

There is a roll pin in the back of the gas cap that can be driven out with a drill bit.
You can then pull the cap up and back to get it out of the tank

I just bought some DuPont Teflon Multi-Use Dry Wax Lubricant at Lowes. It loosened up two frozen locks on my camper shell and made a couple of sticky padlocks smooth as silk. Might do the trick on your cap. About $5/can. Bought it to lube the chain on my other bike, but I'm finding lots of uses.
