Check inside the trunk on the side of the fuel door. Most manufacturers make an emergency release handle for just such situations. It may be behind the trunk liner but should be on the same side of the vehicle as the door is.

SOURCE: I have a latch on
I have seen cases in which the fuel door gets slightly bent and then the release does not release properly. You might be able to get away with having one person pull on the latch on the floor while another taps the gas door with their fist. Tap, do not excessively hit it with anything because it could cause damage to the paint or bend the gas door more. Once the gas door is open you will be able to see where or how it was stuck. Lots of times you can lightly pull up or push down to bend it to become aligned.
If that does not work your only other option would be to either pry the door open which can cause damage or take it to the mechanic. Sometimes there is a emergency release on specific cars for the gas door. (dont believe Hyundai has one on there car)
