the inside door handle is probably broken. the cable may have popped out but usually its because the clips on the inside door handle break off. luckily you can just replace the handle and not have to get a whole new door panel
If the lever itself is broken remove it it will have a cable attached to it. unhook the lever from the cable and pull the inner cord of the cable with plyer's or simular. If the lever is'nt broken it may be stressed so follow the same process. As to removing check arround the lever for screws if no screws the lever pivets on a pin gently tap out the pin with a small punch and hammer if you havent got a suitable punch then file or cut the point of a small nail.
Stick something (like your wallet) under the lever then go to the gascap lid and open it with your fingers. Chances are the popper spring is stuck or has broken.
If you have a second pair of hands available - have them hold the lever for you.

More than likely the metal spring on the inside of the gas door is broken where the plastic attaches. Have someone hold the fuel door lever in the release position while you gently use a flat head screw drive to open the door. The part should cost you less than $10 at Toyota.
If te lever feels "empty", then yes the cable is broken. The cable should be visible from the underside of the car and you should be able to pull it with a proper pair of gloves. This is how it is done on older Accords but I have no knowledge on newer models.
